Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1rotation about the origin is the point (0,0) and rotation about the center is any point(x,y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for the origin x=0 & y=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for the center x can equal any value also y...example (2,9) x=2 y=9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So this would be about the center?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok what exactly is the question i find that for the point H with H' and F with F' \[\left[\begin{matrix}1 & 0 \\ 0 & 1\end{matrix}\right]\] ...what i would also like to know if the topic is matrices

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here is the full question: Carlos performed a transformation on trapezoid EFGH to create E'F'G'H', as shown in the figure below: [insert picture i posted before] What transformation did Carlos perform to create E'F'G'H'? and the answer choices are: A. Rotation of 90 degrees counterclockwise about the origin B. Rotation of 90 degrees counterclockwise about the center of the figure C. Rotation of 90 degrees clockwise about the origin D. Rotation of 90 degrees clockwise about the center of the figure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@LynFran So I assume that it would be 90 degrees clockwise, correct? But I'm not sure if it is about the origin or about the center.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to go from F to F' , you need go on which direction to get 90 degree? dw:1435026460507:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yup, but you got what it means, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah I understand that part now. I just dont understand what it is rotating "about"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have 90 degree, right? and 2 options: about origin and about center of the figure, right? if about origin, that is : all vertices of the original one perpendicular with the corresponding vertices of the new one through origin. Like what I draw, FO \(\perp\) F'O

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you link AO and A'O, you can see they form a 90 degree also.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If about center of the figure, first off, you have to find that center, then, link the vertices like what you did with O. Dat sit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So then it would be about the center of the figure?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1http://www.onlinemathlearning.com/rotationtransformation.htm I don't know why it said wrong. :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0basically if you turn it around the origin the position of the shape and position of the shape on the grid would change but if you turn it on its center it just changes the position of the shape
