what is the coordination number and shape of this particular complex? How do i determine the coordination number of Lutetium (Lu) complexes in general?

Draw a structural formula and everything will be clear.

How do I draw it for these compounds? I've never seen these ligands or this central metal atom before. Also, I'm actually a high school student, but I thought this question is more suitable to be asked in an undergrad forum, as it looks pretty tough. I also cant find info on these ligands or this central metal atom on the web.
