**rotation**. **Rotation** is the process or act of turning or circling around something. An example of **rotation** is the earths orbit around the sun. An example of **rotation** is a group of people holding hands in a circle and walking in the same direction.

Similarly, what are the different types of rotation? **There are four types of geometric transformations:**

Regarding this, what is the formula for a rotation?

180 degrees is (-a, -b) and 360 is (a, b). 360 degrees doesnt change since it is a full **rotation** or a full circle. Also this is for a counterclockwise **rotation**. If you want to do a clockwise **rotation** follow these **formulas**: 90 = (b, -a); 180 = (-a, -b); 270 = (-b, a); 360 = (a, b).

What is a rotation in math?

A **rotation** is a transformation that turns a figure about a fixed point called the center of **rotation**. • An object and its **rotation** are the same shape and size, but the figures may be turned in different directions. • Rotations may be clockwise or counterclockwise.
