I am just writing to see if anyone can give me some insight as the what exactly is happening here. I get that we are crafting a polynomial equation to give us a graph essentially that the hero follows…but looking at the code I am kind of at a loss.
# This function returns the number multiplied by the times def mult(number, times): total = 0 while times > 0: total += number times -= 1 return total
- What is this? I don’t see the function “mult” used anywhere else in the code. What number? Times of what?
while True: y = a * power(x, 3) + b * power(x, 2) + c * power(x, 1) + d * power(x, 0) hero.moveXY(x, y) x = x + 5
- ^^^^ having trouble with formatting here, sorry…So I get that this is the cubic equation where a, b, c, d are coefficients stored in the tower. But why is x = x + 5? Is this the slope?
Sorry guys, math is rusty. TBH I hated math in high school and didn’t pay attention, but as an adult it is fun, but I have to relearn everything now and APPLY it to coding. Having fun, but could use some noob love.
Thanks in advance,
