) Here θ = 270; so, cos(270) = 0 and sin(270) = 1 Thus, (x₁,y₁) = (x*0y*1, x*1+y*0) = (y,x) [It is equivalent to 90 deg rotation in clockwise]

thanks heres a few more im just so bad at math How are the coordinates of the new point found if it is rotated 90° counterclockwise? How many degrees is that equivalent to if the rotation is clockwise?

I don't quite understand @seashell 's reasoning. What I believe one should do is find the angle of the point to the \(x\)axis, and then find the point that is three times the distance away form the origin as the original point.

Dilation means to stretch outward...it's not a rotation.
