Answer:

Due to rotation of A distance reduced between A and B by 4.4646

Explanation:

enter image source here

#A((-7),(4)) -> A’((7),(-4))#

# vec (AB) = sqrt((-7-2)^2 + (4+1)^2) = 10.2956#

#vec (A’B) = sqrt((7-2)^2 + (-4+1)^2) = 5.831#

Distance change

#vec(AB) - vec (A’B) = 10.2956 - 5.831 = 4.4646#
