# [Help]Write a program that moves a circle inside a square box

Hello , How R U all ?

please can any one help me in this program :

Write a program that moves a circle inside a square box.
The circle is reflected when it hits any side of the box.
Let us assume that the reflection angle is 45 degrees in relation to the line perpendicular to any box side.

its a small program , i made the matrix , its just need to be completed in perfect way

the numbers in the matrix refers to :
No.0 refers to the empty space
No.1 refers to the wall
No.2 refers to the moving circle

Can any one help me with it ?
you cab change any thing is wrong in the code if you want to .

What in godâ€™s name is that matrix?

I wonâ€™t give you the exact commands, but rather tell you what you need to do to solve your problem:

[ul][li]Define the circleâ€™s center as two floats
[/li][li]Move these floats according to a direction
[/li][li]Find out whether a circle, combined of those floats (position and movement) and the radius leaves a pre-defined box
[/li][li]Invert the x or y direction according to which side has been hit
[/li][li]Draw the circle as a combination of some triangles, calculated by sin and cos. Thereâ€™s no single command for drawing a circle
[/li][/ul]

Thatâ€™s how I would do it. I assume you have enough knowledge about programming and the basics of openGL; if not, you should look up a tutorial. We canâ€™t solve whole assignments for you!
