Move the slider and notice what happens to the image and coordinates of point A each time the rotation is 90 degrees. You can also move point A to a differnt location on the

*x*-axis.Based on patterns you noticed, what do you think the coordinates would be if I rotated the Point (115, 0) by 90 degrees about the origin?

Based on patterns you noticed, what do you think the coordinates would be if I rotated the Point (115, 0) by 270 degrees about the origin?

Explain why you chose the answers you did on the two questions above.
