# Program to print a rectangle pattern

• Last Updated : 04 Oct, 2018

Given height h and width w, print a rectangular pattern as shown in example below.

Examples:

```Input : h = 4, w = 5
Output : @@@@@
@   @
@   @
@@@@@

Input : h = 7, w = 9
Output : @@@@@@@@
@      @
@      @
@      @
@      @
@      @
@@@@@@@@
```

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

The idea is to run two loops. One for number of rows to be printed and other for number of columns. Print a ‘@’ only when current row is first or last. OR current column is first or last.

## C++

 `// CPP program to print a rectangular pattern``#include``using` `namespace` `std;`` ` `void` `printRectangle(``int` `h, ``int` `w)``{``    ``for` `(``int` `i=0; i

The time complexity is O(n2).
