Run a Football Play Based on Geometry
Problem Statement:
You need to make the first robot drive up in the y direction for 12 inches, then make a 60 degree turn. Complete the hypotenuse of the triangle, turn 30 degrees, and drive half of the final leg of the triangle to run this play. Make sure to follow the directions carefully or else the quarterback will not know where to throw the ball!
