    Question christmas tree in c programming using loops.

    hello. i have just started doing programming and i have this number that i got stuck.can you please help me out and explain the basics to me...? here is the question:

    The tree consists of a series of tiers (three in this case) of increasing size. Write a
    program to produce such a display having prompted the user for the number of tiers.
    You could try putting a few baubles on the tree (using o or O).

    Read this ... Homework Policy

    First you need to spend a few minutes and figure out exactly what's being asked of you and "display a christmas tree" is a totally inadequate level of understanding... climb into the problem, understand it right down to the minutia. From there plan out how you would solve the problem in little tiny steps (like the computer does)... next write code from the plan and test it.

    If you get stuck (really stuck, not lazy stuck) you may post your code here and we'll see what we can do to help...
