# Problem with parameter in point command

Gluon137 shared this question 1 year ago

I have a problem with the point command.

Point A moves on the sequence of polygons with the parameter s.

On the triangle (n=1) the point A reaches its starting position by s=.74

On the square (n=2) the point A reaches its starting position with s=.8

I think it should be 1 in all cases. Can you help me please? `As those are closed curves, the point usually starts at 0 and reaches the stating point again at 1.`

but if you define polygon(A,B,C,A) this is a quadrilateral, the A is the point at 0 and at 0.75..1

you must define polygon(A,B,C) for a triangle 2

I have no clue, why it does not work 1

both are the same wrong link 2 1

I can't find the option to close this thread. Does a moderator have to close it?  1

I am really sorry. Does this one work?

Ok, now it works.  1

The starting position for all paths are 0, and it is the left point of the path

what is the problem?? 1

As those are closed curves, the point usually starts at 0 and reaches the starting point again at 1.
