Hints
• To translate a shape, every point of the shape must move the same distance in the same direction.
• To draw the above image, translate the cube by the distance of the square’s diagonal, which is approximately 1.412 times the length of a side i.e. 70.71 if the side was 50 steps. (This is calculated using Pythagoras' theorem: $d = \sqrt{side^{2} + side^{2}} = side \sqrt{2}$)
