In the complex plane, what is the length of the diagonal of the square with vertices \(4, 3+5i, -2+4i, \text{and} -1-i? \)

In the complex plane, what is the length of the diagonal of the square with vertices \(4,\ 3+5i,\ -2+4i, \text{ and } -1-i \) ?

 

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline && |(3+5i)-(-1-i)| \\ &=& |3+5i+1+i| \\ &=& |4+6i| \\ &=& 2|2+3i| \\ &=& 2\sqrt{2^2+3^2} \\ &=& \mathbf{2\sqrt{13}} \\ \hline \end{array}\)

 

or

 

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline && |(-2+4i)-(4)| \\ &=& |-2+4i -4| \\ &=& |-6+4i| \\ &=& 2|-3+2i| \\ &=& 2\sqrt{(-3)^2+2^2} \\ &=& \mathbf{2\sqrt{13}} \\ \hline \end{array}\)
