Rhombus IKLM has vertices $$J(−1,−4), K(1,1),$$ and L(6,3). The coordinates of M are $$(\Box)⋅(?). [17,6]5.D$$

A rhombus is a parallelogram so its opposite sides are parallel. So, $$JK^{-}∥LM^{-}.$$ To get from K to J, you move 2 units to the left (subtract 2 from x) and move 5 units down (subtract 5 from y). So, we to this from L to find M:
$$M(6−2,3−5)=M(4,−2)$$
