This figure is a square:
-- right angles at opposite corners mean two parallel sides are perpendicular to two other parallel sides
-- RS = ST. Equal sides of a shape with two sets of parallel and two sets of perpendicular lines mean the corresponding parallel sides (OT and OR), are equal

The length of RS is 3, taken from the difference in y-coordinates of vertex R and S
The y-coordinate of R is 0. y-coordinate, given, of S, is 3. (3 - 0) = 3

RS = ST = 3, which means that S must have a k-coordinate that makes length of ST = 3

The difference between the x-coordinates of T, call its x-coordinate t, and S, must = 3
t = 0
t - k = 3
0 - k = 3
-k = 3
k = -3
