    It is rotated through 90 degreees clockwise about B
    Draw accurately the locus of the point D


    question 5 on the paper help is appreciated

    So you know what a locus is yeah? In this case it's just the path that point D follows.

    I'd start of by accurately drawing the new square and label where point D ends up. Then, get a compass and put it on point B with the pencil on point D. Move the compass around so you have a curved line connecting the old point D with the new point D. This will give you the path or 'locus' that D traveled.

    thank you very much is there any chance you can do it on a paper and upload just to make sure i've got the right answer as i have no one to help me with this.

    The locus will be the arc of a circle.
