Two dimensional array 2: circunference on screen


Objetive:

Create a java program that declares creates a 70x20 two-dimensional array of characters, "draws" a circumference or radius 8 inside it, and displays it on screen.

Hint: the points in the circumference can be obtained using:
x = xCenter + r * cos angle
y = yCenter + r * sin angle

"sin" and "cos" expect the angle to be measured in radians, instead of degrees. To convert from one unit to the other, you must remember that 360 degrees = 2 PI radians (or 180 degrees = PI radians): float radians = (angle * Math.PI / 180.0);

You might draw 72 points (as there are 360 degrees in a circumference, they would be spaced 5 degreees from each other)

Hint: in java, cosine is Math.Cos, sine is Math.Sin and PI is Math.PI


Code:

public class Main
{
	public static void main(String[] args)
	{
		double r, x, y;

		for (int i = 0; i < 360; i += 5)
		{
			rad = i * Math.PI / 180.0;
			x = 35 + 8 * Math.cos(rad);
			y = 10 + 8 * Math.sin(rad);

			Console.SetCursorPosition((int)x, (int)y);
			System.out.print("X");
		}

		Console.SetCursorPosition(1, 20);
	}
}
