### Challenge: Travel and Rotate

In this two-part challenge you need to:- travel a distance of
*D*along a straight line, where*50cm < D < 100cm*

*Moving along a straight line by D cm* - rotate by
*R*degrees, where*90 < R < 360*

*Rotating by R = 225 degree*

Your programming environment can be either NXT-G, LeJOS, or MS Robotics Studio, but NXT-G is recommended for this assignment.

### Scoring:

You have one try for each challenge. You need to complete the challenges in two parts, with 10 minute preparation time for each part.

- Each part is worth 50 points
- For the distance part you need to be within 95% of
*D*, otherwise 5 points will be deducted for each additional discrepancy of 5%, i.e. if the distance*D*is 80cm, you get 50 points if you travel between 76 cm and 84 cm, 45 points for travel between 72 cm and 88 cm, etc. - For the rotation part you need to be within 10 degrees of the specified rotation,
otherwise 5 points will be deducted for each discrepancy of 10 degrees, i.e. if
*R*= 225, you get 50 points for rotation between 215 and 235 degrees, 45 points for rotation between 205 and 245 points, etc.

The team with distance closest to *D* receives 5 bonus points, the team with the closest
rotation receives an additional 5 bonus points.
