Prerequisite: Python Turtle Basic

Turtle is an inbuilt module of python. It enables us to draw any drawing by a turtle, methods defined in the turtle module and by using some logical loops. To draw something on the screen(cardboard) just move the turtle(pen). To move turtle(pen) there are some functions i.e forward(), backward(), etc.

Approach to draw a Spiraling Polygon of the given sides and of size n:  

  • Import turtle and create a turtle instance.
  • Set sides = 5, sides of the polygon.
  • Using for loop(i = 0 to i < n * sides) and repeat below step
    • turtle.forward(i  * 10).
    • turtle.right(360 / sides).
  • Close the turtle instance.

Below is the implementation:


# importing turtle module 
import turtle 
# number of side
# size
n = 7
# creating instance of turtle 
pen = turtle.Turtle() 
# loop to draw a side 
for i in range(n*sides): 
    # drawing side of 
    # length i*10 
    pen.forward(i * 10
    # changing direction of pen 
    # by 360/sides degree in clockwise 
    pen.right(360 / sides)
# closing the instance
