    Need Help Displaying A Pattern.

    Hello, I need help displaying this pattern by using loops and only putting one multiplication sign on in a cout statement.

    -Okay this pattern isn't displaying correctly when I post it. All the stars have to be aligned on the right side.

    This is what I have done so far, but I am having trouble getting the pattern. Thanks in Advance.



    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main ()
    {
    	
    	for (int row = 0; row <5; row++)
    	{
    			for (int star = 0; star < 10; star++)
    			{
    					cout<<'*';
    					if(star == 1)
    					break;
    					
    			}
    			cout<<" "<<'*';
    			cout<<endl;
    
    		
    
      
    	}
    
    
    	return 0;
    
    }

    There's a function to make things aligned to the right, I think its a member of std. Search google.com for aligning text to the right and you should find something. The pattern is something you're going to have to figure out yourself through trial and error. Unless a developer here is willing to do it for you .

    Try for (int star = 0; star < row; star++)
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    C way.

    try make
    Code:
    for (int star = 0; star < 10; star++)
    to
    Code:
    for (int star = 10; star > 0 or 1??; star--)
    int row should start with 1 and row < 5 to row <= 5


    print asterisk only if star is less or equals to row, else print space

    Code:
          *
        **
