# Partially rotated coordinate systems

Hello,

I am trying to understand this partially rotated coordinate systems.

I do not understand how does x'=xcos(theta)+ysin(theta) and y'=ycos(theta)-xsin(theta)

I am probably stuck at silly answer but i need this to understand deriving of formulas for special relativity.

Thanks
