Aaron is drawing some designs for greeting cards. He divides a grid into 4 quadrants and starts by drawing a shape in one quadrant. He then reflects, rotates or translates the shape into the other three quadrants. Finish Aaron's first design by reflecting the gray shape over the vertical line. Then reflect both of the shapes over the horizontal line. This will make a design in all four quadrants.

Rotate the second shape 90 degrees clockwise about the origin and draw the third shape. Rotate the third shape 90 degrees clockwise about the origin and draw the fourth shape.
