    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.
