**Clockwise**. **Clockwise** means moving in the direction of the hands on a clock. Most screws and bolts are tightened, and faucets/taps are closed, by **turning clockwise**.

Subsequently, question is, what happens when you rotate a point 90 degrees clockwise? When the **point** is **rotated** through **90**° **clockwise** about the origin, the **point** M (h, k) takes the image M (k, -h). Therefore, the new position of **point** M (-2, 3) will become M (3, 2). 2. Find the co-ordinates of the **points** obtained on **rotating** the **point** given below through **90**° about the origin in **clockwise** direction.

Regarding this, what is the rule for rotation of 90 degrees clockwise?

There are some general **rules** for the **rotation** of objects using the most common **degree** measures (**90 degrees**, 180 **degrees**, and 270 **degrees**). The general **rule for rotation** of an object **90 degrees** is (x, y) --------> (-y, x).

Is a 90 degree rotation clockwise or counterclockwise?

Keep in mind that **rotations** on a coordinate grid are considered to be **counterclockwise**, unless otherwise stated. Starting with ΔABC, draw the **rotation** of 90º. (It is assumed that the center of the **rotation** is the origin and that the **rotation** is **counterclockwise**.)
