This is how you do it.
You might want a calculator for some so here's an online one.

After that, Check this

As you can see, 360° is a circle (which is considered a polygon with infinite sides).
So to get the number, divide the sides of the polygon by the degrees of a circle.
That simple!
The only problem is that it might glitch with decimals.
So basically, it is a "Leave a trail" block.
Inside it, you put "Move forward (___)" and add a "Turn (360 ÷ (number of sides))"

Pls comment if it worked for you.
BYE!!!

This is a great tutorial! Just a tip though, if your polygon has a lot of sides, it will start to look more like a circle. (If you have a shape with 360 sides, it might as well just be a circle :wink:)

On Hopscotch it is literally impossible to make a circle, you can get very close, using 360s.
