Now, I'm onto the rotation part. How do I find the exact values of cosθ, sinθ and tanθ and hence write down a formal definition of rθ?

The perplexing part is that the question states that I don't need to work out the angle θ.

Perhaps a fresh pair of eyes on the question will help (please PM me if you'd like to read the Q in full).

If you can help me solve this, I will be most grateful.

Thanks in advance.
