Hi i've been assigned with doing a torn square, and i've kinda got it working with the code below.
import turtle turtle.reset() length=100 degree=60 i=0 while i < 4: turtle.forward(length/length*40) turtle.right(degree) turtle.forward(length/2) turtle.left(degree+degree) turtle.forward(length/2) turtle.right(degree) turtle.forward(length/length*40) i+=1 turtle.right(90) else: raw_input("there's hopefully a square, all torn like!")
as you can see i can change the degree so the torn square looks different but i know i'm supposed to do some math equations to work out the degree of the torn length.
pythagorean theorem is what i need. (** is to the power of isnt it?)
a**2 + b**2 = c**2 right?
So my length for
a=40 b=10 .....(all the other code) turtle.forward(a**2+b**2)
but that sends it really really far, do i need to square route the result ?
sorry if i yabbered i tried to use this as my thought pad, still trying to work it out while i'm typing this :P
