How to find new coordinates from translation rotation

I have one coordinate and want to get a new coordinate after rotation like image below. Can anyone give me a simple formula ?

enter image description here

EDIT : after using eol formula...


there's a very small miss "6.1232338E-15".

Just use a rotation matrix (taken from

float newX = x*Math.cos(angleRad) - y*Math.sin(angleRad);
float newY = x*Math.sin(angleRad) - y*Math.cos(angleRad);

One thing to mention is that you need to make sure that the angle is in radians, so you may need to perform this conversion:

float angleRad = angle*Math.PI/180;
