Find the transformation for the triangle with the given vertices: D(8,15) E(7,4) F(4,10) moved right 3 and down 1, then reflected about the xaxis, then rotated 172 degrees counter clockwise. I know the answer, but I don't have any idea how to get it. Answer is D1 = (8.4, 15.4) E1 = (10.6, 3.6) F1 = (8.5, 9.9) Thanks!

first part is easy, add the x and y coordinates of each vertex by 3 and 1 respectively. now change the sign of the y coordinate of each vertex. finally, multiply each of the vertex (as a vector) by the rotational matrix arccos 172 arcsin 172 arcsin 172 arccos172
