Rotation in graph

Suppose I have a triangle with coordinates (1,1),(3,1),(2,2) and I want to rotate them 80 degrees so that they stay at same distance from origin,what will be the rotated triangle's coordinates?how do I find them?

Re: Rotation in graph

hi Harold,

Can you do matrix multiplication?

The matrix

multiplied by your coordinates written as vectors:

will do the trick.

MathsIsFun has a matrix calculator at … lator.html

Choose option AB.
