Here are the criteria:
You are given two points, X and Y, and the direction in degrees, L, between X and Y, assuming up is 0 or 360. X is the center of a circle with a radius of .5 and the center of a square with sides of 1; Y is the center of a circle with a radius of 1 and the center of a square with sides of 2. The squares are tilted so that their sides are parallel with each other and a line connecting X and Y will bisect one side of each square. With this information, can you determine a formula to find the outside corners of the two squares, A B C and D. All points will lie in the upper-right quadrant of a two dimensional graph (all numbers will be positive). I've attached a picture for clarification.

If instead you're given X and Y, then simply calculate L and a from them.
Don't bet anything significant on this, there could be a typo or two [physical or mental].
A = -.5[cos a+sin a+x1, cos a-sin a+x2]
D = -.5[sin a-cos a+x1, cos a+sin a+x2]
B = [-cos a+(L+1)*sin a+x1, sin a+(L+1)*cos a+x2]
C = [ cos a+(L+1)*sin a+x1, -sin a+(L+1)*cos a+x2]
A leader's credentials do not hang on his wall. They are written by the lives of those he has led.
