    If you substitute the rotation matrix for 180 degrees, you'd get the rule T180(x,y)=(-x,-y), so the rotated point should be (9,-3)

    ^know that, or you become a lazy slob like me who imagined it on the coordinate plane instead of remembering the rule. (Facepalm)

    You have a point. But to help someone, we need something concrete to work on.

    I see nothing wrong with imagining it on a coordinate plane. The rule makes more since that way.
