Counting Tiles

Counting Tiles


Stephan needs some help building a circular landing zone using the ice square tiles for their new Ice Base. Before he converts the area to a construction place, Stephan needs to figure out how many square tiles he will need.

Each square tile has size of 1x1 meters. You need to calculate how many whole and partial tiles are needed for a circle with a radius of N meters. The center of the circle will be at the intersection of four tiles. For example: a circle with a radius of 2 metres requires 4 whole tiles and 12 partial tiles.

Input: The radius of a circle as a float

Output: The quantities whole and partial tiles as a list with two integers -- [solid, partial].

checkio(2) == [4, 12]
checkio(3) == [16, 20]
checkio(2.1) == [4, 20]
checkio(2.5) == [12, 20]

How it is used: This task is a simple geometry problem; but you can use it for architecture and topography. As we see in the description, you can calculate the amount of materials needed for a project.

0 < radius ≤ 4

CheckiO Extensions

CheckiO Extensions allow you to use local files to solve missions. More info in a blog post.

In order to install CheckiO client you'll need installed Python (version at least 3.8)

Install CheckiO Client first:

pip3 install checkio_client

Configure your tool

checkio --domain=py config --key=

Sync solutions into your local folder

checkio sync

(in beta testing) Launch local server so your browser can use it and sync solution between local file end extension on the fly. (doesn't work for safari)

checkio serv -d

Alternatevly, you can install Chrome extension or FF addon

checkio install-plugin
checkio install-plugin --ff
checkio install-plugin --chromium

Read more here about other functionality that the checkio client provides. Feel free to submit an issue in case of any difficulties.
