    Complex Analysis Geometry

    Can someone help me with this following question which I have a lot of trouble with?

    Thanks!

    The aim of this question is to describe, given two complex numbers representing two vertices of a square, how to find two complex numbers representing the other two vertices of the square.

    (a) Show carefully, that if z represents the point on the complex
    plane then represents a point with and perpendicular to .

    (b) If the given complex numbers and represent two adjacent vertices of the square, there are two possibilities for the pair of
    complex numbers representing the other two vertices. What are
    they? (And, of course, give a careful justification).

    (c) If the given complex numbers and represent two diagonally opposite vertices of the square what is the pair of complex numbers
    representing the other two vertices?

    The first part of part a) is \left| {iz} \right| = \left| i \right|\left| z \right| = \left| z \right|

    Then note that multiplying by i rotates z by \frac{\pi}{2}. So they are perpendicular.
