# 2.5.7 Circle Pyramid CodeHS Answers

The most common answer is:

``````speed(0)
penup()
pendown()
circle(50)
penup()
right(90)
forward(50)
for i in range (2):
pendown()
circle(50)
left (180)
penup()
forward(100)
setposition (-150,-150)
for i in range(3):
pendown()
circle(50)
penup()
left(90)
forward(100)
right(90)

``````

This code for drawing a circle pyramid has the right idea but seems a bit convoluted and might not work as expected due to the positioning logic. The intention is to draw a pyramid shape made of circles, but the movement and positioning commands need refinement for clarity and correctness.

Here’s a revised version of your code that systematically draws a circle pyramid with three levels, ensuring proper alignment and spacing:

``````import turtle

turtle.speed(0)  # Set the drawing speed to the fastest

# Move turtle to starting position for the top circle
turtle.penup()
turtle.goto(0, 0)  # Adjust starting position as needed
turtle.pendown()

# Level 1 - Single circle at the top
turtle.circle(50)
turtle.penup()

# Move turtle to starting position for level 2
turtle.goto(-50, -100)  # Adjust according to the radius and desired spacing
turtle.pendown()

# Level 2 - Two circles
for i in range(2):
turtle.circle(50)
turtle.penup()
turtle.forward(100)  # Move to the position for the next circle
turtle.pendown()

# Move turtle to starting position for level 3
turtle.goto(-100, -200)  # Adjust according to the radius and desired spacing

# Level 3 - Three circles
for i in range(3):
turtle.circle(50)
turtle.penup()
turtle.forward(100)  # Move to the position for the next circle
turtle.pendown()

turtle.done()  # Keep the window open until manually closed
``````

This version uses `goto()` to position the turtle at the start of each pyramid level accurately. It draws one circle for the first level, moves the turtle to the starting position for the second level, draws two circles, and then does the same for the third level with three circles. Adjustments to the `goto()` coordinates ensure that the circles are properly aligned to form a pyramid shape.

The `circle(50)` command draws circles with a radius of 50 units, and you can adjust the `goto()` coordinates to change the spacing between the circles as needed.
