I just spent ages on this and then my page froze and I lost it all.

 

Here is the short version. I treated it as a co-ordinate geometry question.

Let A(-19,32)  B(-5,12)   C(-22,15)

 

AB is longer than AC so AB is a diagonal and AC is a side.

The midpoint of AB is ((-12,22)  That is the centre of the square.  I'll call it O

The gradient of AB is  -10/7

so

the gradient of the other diagonal is 7/10 =0.7     (the diagonals are perpendicular)

 

The distance from the centre O to any vertex is sqrt149

So find the point collinear with C and O that is sqrt149 units from O

 

( this point is the 4th vertex and it is (-2,29)

 

So the 4th vertex is    -2+29i

 

Pictorial representation.

 

 

If you have questions then ask away  laugh
