print a combined diagonal star pattern using only for loops as given below:
   * *
  *   *
 *     *
*       *

What I have tried:

package com.packages;

public class star9 {
    public static void main(String args[]) {
        int i, j, k, l,m;
        for (i = 1; i <= 4; i++) {
            for (j = 3; j >= i; j--) {
                System.out.print(" ");
                System.out.print(" *");
                System.out.print(" ");

It's 9x5.
In the first row, print one in the middle (....*).
In the 2nd, print two * with a -1 and +1 offset from the middle (...*.*...).

Nobody is going to write your code for you. That doesn't help you at all. You're missing the most important part of problem solving, thinking about the problem.

1 solution

Start by writing a method that takes two parameters to print: "blanks before star" and "blanks after star".

Test that, make sure it works.
then it's simple: you just need a single loop that calls it with varying numbers: (5, 0), (4, 1), (3, 3), (2, 5), (1, 7), (0, 9)

Give it a try: it's not complicated if you spend a short time thinking before you launch into code.
