0 samsons17 -4 8 Years Ago how to display this output ? ********** ********* ******** ******* ****** ***** **** *** ** * ** *** **** ***** ****** ******* ******** ********* ********** thank you... c++

0 firstPerson 761 8 Years Ago Here is a hint : ********** 10 stars ********* 9 stars ******** 8 stars ******* 7 stars ****** 6 stars ***** 5 stars **** 4 stars *** 3 stars ** 2 stars * 1 stars ** 2 stars *** 3 stars **** ***** ****** ******* ******** ********* ********** 10 stars So you see that they decrease by 1 star until they reach 1 then they start increment. so assuming you can separate this problem into 2 blocks, you can do something like this : for(int i = 10; i != 1; i--) printStars(i); //a function that prints i stars with endl for(int i = 2; i <= 10; i++) printStars(i); Now what should your printStars look like : for example if one calls printStars(4) it should output the following : **** Go ahead and try to devise printStars then you problem becomes much easier.

-1 tkud 8 Years Ago This should do... #include<iostream> using namespace std; void printstar(int num_of_times); void reverseprint(int highest); int main() { for(int i=0;i<10;i++){ printstar(i); } reverseprint(10); return 0; } void printstar(int num_of_times){ for(int i=0;i<num_of_times;i++){ cout<<"* "; } cout<<endl; } void reverseprint(int highest){ for(int i=0;i<highest;i++){ int x=highest-i; printstar(x); } cout<<endl; } Please, if this satisfies your problem,mark this thread as solved.Thanks "Show me your code and i will tell you who you are.."---Tkud
