It's not simple. Scratch is supposed to be easy to use. Not everyone knows trigonometry. by this logic, we can remove “move (10) steps”

why not just usego to x: ((x position) + ([cos v] of ((direction)*(amt)))) y ((x position) + ([sin v] of ((direction)*(amt))))i mean jeez so simpleYou could, but that would make less sense, and it's supposed to be easy to use. and while we are at it, the “wait” block is also unnecessary, as you can use the timer for it.

BTW, I remember reading somewhere that scratch's blocks are faster than a series of blocks doing the same, so (()^()) would be technically speaking faster than doing logarithms. I mean, is it that hard to add scratchteam?

They were being sarcastichow is that simple? by this logic, we can remove “move (10) steps”

why not just usego to x: ((x position) + ([cos v] of ((direction)*(amt)))) y ((x position) + ([sin v] of ((direction)*(amt))))i mean jeez so simple

you should've usedchange x by ()as the easy workaround block.

still, your point is good.

Does anyone know where I can find an ACTIVE Big Brother AUDITION studio? Pweeez tell me. (I'm also find with the Amazing Race, but not Survivor)

the Scratch's left side of the screen has a negative x coordinate. Can anybody solve this? abs operator makes a negative value positive

tryset [base v] to ([abs v] of (x position))

Help With Scripts for more problems (this is the suggestions forum)

But would that make it follow the curve? Thanks anyway, I'll try it later!

EDIT: Yep, it worked! Thanks!

Fun facts: 10^3 = 10 * 10 * 10 = 1,000

Exponentiation is a mathematical operation, written as bn, involving two numbers, the base b and the exponent n. When n is a positive integer, exponentiation corresponds to repeated multiplication of the base: that is, bn is the product of multiplying n bases:

The exponent is usually shown as a superscript to the right of the base. In that case, b to the power of n is called “b raised to the nth power”, “b raised to the power of n”, or “the n-th power of b”.

When n is a positive integer and b is not zero, b−n is naturally defined as

1/ b to the power of n, preserving the property b to the power of n × b to the power of m = b to the power of n + m. With exponent −1, b to the power of -1 is equal to 1/b, and is the reciprocal of b. (BTW I got this from Wikipedia)

<() ^ () = ()>

so hard

if <(1) ^ (1) = (10)>

when <(1) ^(1) = (10)>

What is hard, too? also make a new topic<() ^ () = ()>

so hardif <(1) ^ (1) = (10)>when <(1) ^(1) = (10)>
