Hello, I am trying to create this ascii art using nested for loops,

``````***** ////////// *****
****  ////////\\  ****
***   //////\\\\   ***
**    ////\\\\\\    **
*     //\\\\\\\\     *
\\\\\\\\\\``````

I tried doing a paper check and this is what I have so far...

``````*     /     \    *
____________________
5     10    0    5
4     8     2    4
3     6     4    3
2     4     6    2
1     2     8    1
0     0     10   0``````

my brain tends to start sizzling when i get in-depth with nested for loops, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Okay try this algorithm for this you need to iterate 6 times to print all right so for that have a main loop stating to iterate 6 time and include the other iterations within that loop

I have given the pseudo code below

``````for (x=5 until x>=0 and deccrement x by 1 in each iteration){

for(a=0 until a<=x and increment a by 1 in each iteration){
print("*");
}

for(a=(x*2) until a>=0 and decrement a by 1 in each iteration){
print("/");
}

for(a=(10-(x*2)) until a>=0 and decrement a by 1 in each iteration){
print("\\");
}

for(a=0 until a<=x and increment a by 1 in each iteration){
print("*");
}
}``````

thanks for the help!
the only thing it needs now is the spaces added in, maybe i can figure that part out, thanks for the help tho!!
