A Here's an example of how your star() function could be rewritten. Note that it does not exactly do what it does in your example regarding the start and end position of the turtle. So use it for inspiration only ;) from turtle import * from math import sin, sqrt, radians def star(width): R = (width)/(2*sin(radians(72))) A = (2*width)/(3+sqrt(5)) # record the initial position position = getturtle().pos() heading = getturtle().heading() penup() left(36) # initial angle forward(R) pendown() for arms in range(5): left(144) forward(A) right(72) forward(A) penup() # go back to the initial position getturtle().setpos(position) getturtle().setheading(heading) showturtle() clear() star(50) -- IMPORTANT NOTICE: The contents of this email and any attachments are confidential and may also be privileged.
