This is my first time using a website like this, and I typically wouldn’t, however, I just cannot seem to figure out two parts of my code that are going wrong. I do not want someone to just give me the answer because I do need to learn, but I don’t know where to look after searching all day.

I am having two problems, one within the checkerboard method, occasionally my board will print diagonally and I have tried switching up many things to stop it, and also, my spiral method is always starting its x and y axis at the same place just different multiples of it (hopefully that makes sense & this is when I put the code on a random loop). There is a Graphics file my school has given to me to input the Graphics, hopefully that is not needed. If you can help in any way it would be greatly appreciated. I do not want anyone to do my homework for me, and I think I have done enough to where no one believes otherwise, however if I should be phrasing this a separate way, please let me know.

Thank you, Chase

Here is my Code:
