Recursive squares exercise java
Hi guys!
I am currently taking my first programming course and we have been given an exercise to produce recursive squares.
Here is the code for the first part.
Java Code:public class RecursiveSquares { // plot a square, centered on (x, y) of the given side length // with a light gray background and black border public static void drawSquare(double x, double y, double size) { StdDraw.setPenColor(StdDraw.LIGHT_GRAY); StdDraw.filledSquare(x, y, size/2); StdDraw.setPenColor(StdDraw.BLACK); StdDraw.square(x, y, size/2); } // plot an order n recursive squares pattern // centered on (x, y) of the given side length public static void draw(int n, double x, double y, double size) { if (n == 0) return; drawSquare(x, y, size); // 2.2 ratio looks good double ratio = 2.2; // recursively draw 4 smaller trees of order n1 draw(n1, x  size/2, y  size/2, size/ratio); // lower left draw(n1, x  size/2, y + size/2, size/ratio); // upper left draw(n1, x + size/2, y  size/2, size/ratio); // lower right draw(n1, x + size/2, y + size/2, size/ratio); // upper right } // read in a commandline argument N and plot an order N recursive // squares pattern public static void main(String[] args) { int N = Integer.parseInt(args[0]); double x = 0.5, y = 0.5; // center of square double size = 0.5; // side length of square draw(N, x, y, size); } }

Re: Recursive squares exercise java
For variation a) you first draw the big square and then you draw the four smaller squares on top of it; for variation d) you first draw the four small squares and the big square on top of them; variations b) and c) are similar variations with a different order of drawing ...
kind regards,

Re: Recursive squares exercise java
How would you draw them in a different order by hand? Likely re ordering them will come down to just reorganizing the lines of code.
