use the rotate tool to find the image of pentagon cdefg that's this irregular pentagon er over here when rotated 270 degrees about the point negative 2 comma 3 the direction of rotation by a positive angle is counterclockwise so it's counter counterclockwise alright rotate tool to rotate around negative 2 comma 3 so let's click on rotate and then we want to go to the point they say rotate around the point negative 2 comma 3 so I move this to x equals negative 2 y equals 3 that's what we want to rotate around and we want to rotate 270 degrees so it's this is maybe the part that takes the most visualization if we rotate 90 degrees that would be going from you know if we think about this arrow right actually let me just do it so if I move this arrow up here I have rotated 90 degrees positive 90 degrees we're moving counterclockwise now if I move it over here we have rotated 180 degrees and now I move it down here I have now rotated it 270 degrees if they said 360 we would get we would get back to where we started so this is 270 degrees it just like just like that and we're done let's let's check our answer and we got it right
