Turning Left/Right: A Real-World Example
Problem Statement:
The robot has been hired to walk the neighborhood dogs. Using the turnLeft()/turnRight() blocks show the path of the daily walk the robot makes on his dog walking route. The robot is not allowed to walk diagonally. Start the robot at (0, 0). The first dog lives at (3, 4). Then the robot continues forward 5 units and turns left and goes another 6 units to pick up the next dog. The last dog is 7 units to the right. The route ends at the dog park which is at (-5, -2).
