Hi,

I would like to print star pattern in the following way -

****
***
**
*

main()

int i;

clrscr();

for(i=4;i<=4;i++)

{

printf("*");

getch();

}

It prints starts like ****

I don't know how to complete the program. Can anyone please do the complete program for this so that stars are printed in the manner as given above.

Thanks

try two for loops...one embedded into the other

``````for (i = 0; i < num; ++i)
{
for (j = 0; j < num2; ++j)
{}
}``````

Thanks for quick reply. What do you mean by num and num2 in the above code. Will i have to declare num and num2.

Its just an example that I made up..The numbers signify nothing.

It doesn't matter, if she follows your advise she will get a square.

Then you'll learn nothing.

Some clue:
One loop inside another one as previously said.
Outer loop is the number of rows.
Inside loop number of stars for each row printed minus one less than previous row.

for(i=1;i<=4;i++)
{
for(j=1;j<=5-i;j++)
{
printf("*");
}
printf("\n");
}
getch();
}
