Rotation
Rotation
Rotation is a circular movement that has a central point that stays fixed and everything else moves around that point in a circle. A full rotation is 360°. The fixed point about which an object is rotated is called the centre of rotation and the angle through which every point of the object is rotated is called the angle of rotation.
The angle of rotation is positive is the rotation is made in an anticlockwise direction and it is negative if the rotation is made in a clockwise direction.
Rotation using Coordinates
 Rotation through 90° in an anticlockwise direction about the centre at the origin(Positive Quater Turn): When we rotate the point along the 90°, the xcoordinate and ycoordinate changes the place and the signs are changed.
We write this as,
P(x, y) → P'(−y, x)  Rotation through 90° in a clockwise direction about the centre at the origin (Negative Quarter Turn): When we rotate the point along the 90° the yaxis, then ycoordinates remain the same, but xcoordinator are transformed into its opposite.
We can write it as,
P(x, y) → P'(y,−x)  Rotation through 180° about the centre at the origin (Half Turn): If the image is obtained by the rotation through 180° in an anticlockwise direction about the centre at the origin is same or the image obtained by the rotation through 180° in clockwise direction.
We can write it as,
P(x, y) → P'(−x,−y)
 Rotation through 90° in an anticlockwise direction about the centre at the origin (Positive Quater Turn) = P(x, y) → P'(−y, x)
 Rotation through 90^{o} in a clockwise direction about the centre at the origin (Negative Quarter Turn) = P(x, y) → P'(y, −x)
 Rotation through 180° about the centre at the origin (Half Turn) = P(x, y) → P'(−x, −y)

Crossing the \(\triangle\)PQR and \(\triangle\)P'Q'R and plotting them in graph.
Solution:
On plotting the points P(3, 1) and Q(2, 3) on the graph paper to get the line segment PQ.
Now rotate PQ through 180° about the origin O in anticlockwise direction, the new position of points P and Q is:
P(3, 1) → P'(3, 1)
