Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Simply swap the x and y components for each point, then change the sign of the new y component.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for example, if you had a point with a y component of 5, rotating that point 90 degrees would lead to a new point with an xcomponent of 5. If the original point had an xcomponent of 3, rotating that point 90 degrees clockwise would lead to a ycomponent of 5. Thus, a point (a,b) rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise would lead to a point (b,a).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but what if the coordinate is (8,5) & You gotta rotate it counter clockwise, then what happenes to the coordinates?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Essentially, the reverse would be true. The negative 8 xcomponent would become a negative 8 ycomponent, and a ycomponent of 5 would become a negative 5 xcomponent. Thus, (8,5) would become (5,8). (a,b) => (b,a)
