# Print Patterns in PL/SQL

Last Updated : 06 Feb, 2024

You have given a number n then you have to print the number in a right-angled pyramid of *Â
Examples:Â

Input : 3
Output :

Input : 7

## C

 DECLARE   -- declare variable n,   --I AND J of datatype number   N NUMBER := 7;   I NUMBER;   J NUMBER; BEGIN   -- loop from 1 to n   FOR I IN 1..N   LOOP     FOR J IN 1..I     LOOP       DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT('*') ; -- printing *     END LOOP;     DBMS_OUTPUT.NEW_LINE; -- for new line   END LOOP; END; --Program End

Output:Â

A pattern of any shape can be generated by specifying the number of rows and column along with symmetry and regularity. To form a 2D shape one variable is iterated over the other to form the desired pattern.

## Square Pattern using PL/SQL

To print a square pattern inner loop is iterated for the same number of times as the outer loop.

Square of Length 3

## C

 SET SERVEROUTPUT ON; DECLARE -- declare varable   N NUMBER;   BEGIN --user defined input N := &I;     FOR I IN 1..N LOOP     FOR J IN 1..N LOOP       DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT('*');     END LOOP;     DBMS_OUTPUT.NEW_LINE;   END LOOP; END;

#### Input

Output:

Explanation:

For the above example, the inner loop is iterated over the outer for the same number of times. Input for the instance is 5 hence the square pattern is displayed with 5 rows and columns .

## Rectangle Pattern with PL/SQL

To form a rectangular pattern inner loop is iterated for different number of times than the outer loop. Inner loop indicate the number of columns and the outer loop as number of rows in the rectangle.

Rectangle with length as 5 and breadth as 3

## C

 DECLARE --declare variables   numb_row NUMBER;   numb_col NUMBER; BEGIN   --To get input from user   numb_row := &rows;   numb_col := &cols;     FOR i IN 1..numb_row LOOP     FOR j IN 1..numb_col LOOP       DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT('* ');     END LOOP;     DBMS_OUTPUT.NEW_LINE;   END LOOP; END;

Input:

rows:3

columns:5

#### Rectangle Pattern Output

Rectangle Pattern Output

### Conclusion:

Pattern are generated using nested loops .A pattern of any shape can be generated by specifying the number of rows and column along with symmetry . It enhances coding proficiency and enables creative design.
