    well dont rely on these ppl will help you. (this ppl here only will tell you do it your own) but jeez you got to give him some hint


    Here some example i show you but you have to learn it.


    int main()
    {
    int x,y;
    for (x=1;x<=9;x++) {

    { for (y=1;y<=x;y++)

    cout<<1;
    }
    cout<<endl;

    }



    or


    {

    int x,y,z;



    for (x=1;x<=9;x++) {

    for (z=10;z>=x;z--) {

    cout<<" ";
    }

    { for (y=1;y<=x;y++)

    cout<<" 1";
    }
    cout<<endl;

    }

    Hehe. This works just fine, though I question whether it would be accepted.
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <iomanip>
    
    int main()
    {
      int n;
    
      std::cout<<"Enter the number of lines: ";
      std::cin>> n;
      std::cin.ignore();
    
      for ( int i = 0; i < n; i++ ) {
        std::cout<< std::setw ( n - i ) << std::setfill ( ' ' ) <<"";
        std::cout<< std::setw ( i * 2 + 1 ) << std::setfill ( '*' ) <<""<<std::endl;
      }
    
      std::cin.get();
    }
    And another that would be equally unacceptable, though your instructor would marvel at your fluency with printf.
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    #include <cstdio>
    
    int main()
    {
      int n;
    
      std::cout<<"Number of lines: ";
      std::cin>> n;
      std::cin.ignore();
    
      std::string s ( n * 2, '*' );
    
      for ( int i = 1; n > 0; i += 2 )
        std:: printf ( "%*c%.*s\n", n--, ' ', i, s.c_str() );
    
      std::cin.get();
    }

    My best code is written with the delete key.

    the best way is to learn how to trace the code.. and understand it well .

    cuz then you can modify it and apply it to any other problems you have.
    I'm not here. This isn't happening
