Challenge Level

Jannis from Long Bay showed he understood the effect of combining transformations. Well done Jannis.

$R^2=I$ (reflecting twice is the identity).

So $R^3=R$, $R^4=I$.

I noticed that if there is an even number of Rs the result is
the same as I. If there is an odd number of Rs the result is the
same as R.

$R^{2006}=I$ as 2006 is even.

$S$ is clockwise rotation by $90^{\circ}$ about the
origin.

So $S^2$ is clockwise rotation by $180^{\circ}$ about the
origin.

$S^3$ is rotation by $270^{\circ}$ clockwise about the origin
(the same as $S^{-1}$).

$S^4$ is rotation by $360^{\circ}$ about the origin (the same
as $I$).

So $S^{2006}=S^2$ as $S^{2000}=I$.

$T$ is translation one unit to the right;

$T^2$ is translation two units to the right;

$T^3$ is translation three units to the right, and so
on.

$T^{2006}$ is translation 2006 units to the right.

$R S$ is not the same as $S R$.

$R T^2$ is not the same as $T^2 R$.

$(R T)S$ is not the same as $S(R T)$.

However, changing the order does sometimes produce the same
transformation:

$R S^2=S^2 R$, for example.

The inverse of $R S$ is $(R S)^{-1}=S^{-1}R^{-1}$.

$(S T)^{-1}=T^{-1}S^{-1}$.

$(T R)^{-1}=R^{-1}T^{-1}$.

$(R S^2)^{-1}=S^{-2}R^{-1}$.
