  7. You have just programmed the turtle to move forward (fd) 5, over and over again.
  8. Congratulate yourself, You Are A Programmer!
  9. Now press 'Stop'.
  10. Now, click in the 'Instructions' box and move to just after the 5.
  11. Add a space then type rt 45, it should now read fd 5 rt 45 and 'Many Times' is still selected.
  12. Press on 'Start'
