# Print the pyramid pattern with given height and minimum number of stars

Given the minimum number of stars and the height of the pyramid, print the pattern.

Examples:

```Input: min_stars = 1
p_height = 5
Output:

*        *
***      ***
*****    *****
*******  *******
******************

Input: min_stars = 3
p_height = 7
Output:

***            ***
*****          *****
*******        *******
*********      *********
***********    ***********
*************  *************
******************************

```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach is to run loop up to the height of the pyramid.

1. Run a loop to print spaces required.
2. Print the left pyramid.
3. Run a loop to print spaces required in the middle.
4. Print the right pyramid.

Below is the program to print the above pattern:
