A rotation is the motion of a figure by holding one point fixed as the centre and turning the figure by a certain angle in a particular direction. A rotation turns a shape through a clockwise or anticlockwise angle about a fixed point known as the centre of rotation.
Rotation,

To describe a rotation, you must specify the following three things:
