When working in the coordinate plane, assume the center of rotation to be the origin unless told otherwise.

A positive angle of rotation turns the figure counterclockwise, and a negative angle of rotation turns the figure in a clockwise direction.

Rotation of 90 degrees |
R(x, y) = (–y, x) |

Rotation of 180 degrees (same as point reflection in the origin) |
R(x, y) = (–x, –y) |

Rotation of 270 degrees (same as rotation of –90 degrees) |
R(x, y) = (y , –x) |
