Practice the questions given in the worksheet on 90 degree anticlockwise rotation about the origin. The questions are based on how to rotate a shape about the origin 90° counter-clockwise direction and find its new co-ordinates.

**1.** Find the new position of each of the following points when rotated through 90° anticlockwise about the origin.

(i) P (-5, -7)

(ii) Q (-2, 3)

(iii) R (4, -9)

(iv) S (2, 4)

**2.** Construct a parallelogram ABCD with its vertices A (-1, 2); B (3, 2); C (0, -1); D (-4, -1) and rotate it about the origin through 90° anticlockwise. Find the co-ordinates of its vertices in the new position.

**3.** Write the
co-ordinates of the points given below when rotated through 90° anticlockwise
about the origin.

(i) A (-3, 9)

(ii) B (5, 2)

(iii) C (0, -6)

(iv) D (-3, -9)

**4.** Plot the point
X (-5, -3) on the graph. Find the new position of X when it is rotated through
90° anticlockwise direction about the origin.

**5.** Draw a
rectangle PQRS on the graph paper where the co-ordinates of P, Q, R and S are
(5, 4), (7, 4), (7, -3) and (5, 3) respectively. Rotate it about origin through
90° in anticlockwise direction. Find the new position of the rectangle.

**6.** Plot the
points A (-4, -2) and B (-3, 5) on the graph paper. Join AB. Rotate the line
segment AB about the origin through 90° in anticlockwise direction and write
the co-ordinates of A' and B'.
