To determine the angle of rotation, you measure the angle formed by connecting corresponding vertices to the center point of rotation. In Exercise 1, measure ∠𝐴𝐷′𝐴′. What happened to ∠𝐷? Can you see that 𝐷 is the center of rotation, therefore, mapping 𝐷′ onto itself? Before leaving Exercise 1, try drawing ∠𝐡𝐷′𝐡′. Do you get the same angle measure? What about ∠𝐢𝐷′𝐢′?

 

 

Do not include units (º) in your answer.

Now that you can find the angle of rotation, let’s move on to finding the center of rotation. Follow the directions below to locate the center of rotation, taking the figure at the top right to its image at the bottom left.

 

 

  1. Draw a segment connecting points 𝐴 and 𝐴′.
  2. Using a compass and straightedge, find the perpendicular bisector of this segment.
  3. Draw a segment connecting points 𝐡 and 𝐡′.
  4. Find the perpendicular bisector of this segment.
  5. The point of intersection of the two perpendicular bisectors is the center of rotation. Label this point 𝑃.

 

Justify your construction by measuring ∠𝐴𝑃𝐴′ and ∠𝐡𝑃𝐡′. Did you obtain the same measure?
