I'm afraid I haven't done FP1 yet, but you'd have to use a coordinate and multiply it by the matrix and compare it to the new coordinates to determine the centre and angle of rotation, I think. Using a couple of points could help to find this I'd imagine.

You can use coordinates like (0,1) and (0,-1) as reflected points in the x axis to help find the matrix in part b?

As I said, I haven't done FP1 yet so that's just what I'd attempt, looking at that question.

It's just the standard rotation matrix which is of course a rotation about the origin.

As said by B_9710, it is a rotation around the origin by whatever angle you work it out to be. It is worth to keep note that when dealing with matrices, all the transformations which you perform happen relative to the origin, therefore the origin is the only point which does not change!
