Rotating items by not using base point

I need the bottom left corner to meet up with the left white line while keeping the top left corner in place.

I need the bottom left corner to meet up with the left white line while keeping the top left corner in place.

How do I rotate an object by picking a corner or a point and pull it to the angle I need it at? Instead of picking a point and circling around it I want to pick that point and from that point move in a circle.

ROTATING OBJECTS

To rotate an object(s) about a point and along a line, type RO (for rotate) enter, select what you want to rotate, pick your base point (which in your case will be the top left corner of your object, enter, the computer then prompts you for and angle or copy/reference, type r enter for reference, then pick the same base point as your first point, enter, select a second point which will be the other end of your object(s), lastly select the point that you want to rotate to. i hope this was clear. good luck.
