I made a similar thread but I worded it weird and didnt really get the answer I was looking for. So here is a better worded question that I hope someone can help me with solving.


Given a line with slope m, if the line is rotated 90∘ clockwise the slope of the resulting figure is − 1/m, how can I determine the slope if the line is rotated 30∘ or 60∘ clockwise. What if its rotated 210 degrees, or 350?

I need to come up with a formula that will factor in the original slope, take/apply the amount I want to rotate, and give me the new slope.
