Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanks 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Dilation means to stretch outward...it's not a rotation.
