Q. A triangle ABC having coordinates A (15, 15), B (25, 25) and C (15, 35) is
rotated by 30o clockwise about the vertex B. Determine the new vertex positions
after rotation.
Q. A rectangle ABCD having vertices A (10, 15), B (25, 15), C (25, 25) and D (10,
25) is to be reflected about a line passing through points P (25, 20) and Q (10, 30).
Determine the vertices of the reflected rectangle.
Q. Consider ∆ABC having co-ordinates A (5, 5), B (8, 5) and C(5,10). Determine and
draw new vertex position if:
i) The triangle is rotated by 60° CCW about vertex A.
ii) The triangle is scaled by 2 units in x-direction and 3 units in y-direction about
vertex A.
Q. A Bezier curve is to be constructed using control points P0 (35, 30), P1 (25, 0),
P2 (15, 25) and P3 (5, 10). The Bezier curve is anchored at P0 and P3. Find the
