Problem Statement:

The pre-placed code blocks use a loop to draw two sides of a square. Use the Step button to step through the code piece by piece to see how it works. Then change the value of the argument in the loop so that the code has the robot draw a complete square with four sides. What happens if you have the loop repeat more than four times?
