# Worksheet on 90 Degree Clockwise Rotation

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

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

(i) P (-2, -3)

(ii) Q (-5, 7)

(iii) R (9, -5)

(iv) S (2, 5)

2. Find the co-ordinates of the points obtained by rotating the following point through 90° clockwise about the origin.

(i) A (2, -3)

(ii) B (2, 5)

(iii) C (-5, -7)

(iv) D (-2, -8)

3. Plot the point P (-3, -7) on the graph paper. Find the new position of P i.e. P’ when it is rotated through 90° clockwise direction about the origin.

4. Draw a triangle ABC on the graph paper where the co-ordinates of A, B, C are A (-2, 3), B (4, 2) and C (-3, 0). Rotate it about the origin through 90° in clockwise direction. Find the new position of the points A, B and C.

5. Plot the points M (-3, -1) and N (-2, 4) on the graph paper. Join MN. Rotate the line segment MN about the origin through 90° in clockwise direction and write the co-ordinates of M' and N'.
