    Hello, jadee!

    Your explanation is confusing.
    I think I've translated it . . .


    We have a point A(4,10).

    and four horizonal lines: . \begin{array}{cc}L1: & y = 10 \\ L2: & y = 8 \\ L3: & y = 4 \\ L4: & y= 2 \end{array}


    Find points B,C,D on L_2, L_3, L_4 so that ABCD is a rhombus.
    Code:
              |       (4,10)
            10+ - - - - o - - - - - - - - - -
              |        * A  *
              |       *         *   B
             8+ - - -*- - - - - - - o (b,8) -
              |     *              *
              |  D *              *
             4+ - o - - - - - - -*- - - - - -
              | (d,4) *         *
              |           *  C *
             2+ - - - - - - - o - - - - - - -
              |             (c,2)
              |
        ------+--------------------------------
              |

    We must determine b,c,d so that: . \overline{AB} \,=\, \overline{BC} \,=\,\overline{CD} \,=\,\overline{DA}.

    Am I close?
