Write to program to print the pyramid pattern formed of stars 

Example : 

Input:  n = 6
Output:
       *
       * *
       * * *
       * * * *
       * * * * *
       * * * * * * 
       * * * * *
       * * * *
       * * *
       * * 
       *

The idea is to use two for loops for every part of the pyramid. The two parts may be classified as upper part and lower part 

C++




// C++ program to print Pyramid pattern
#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
 
void pattern(int n)
{   
    // For printing the upper part of the pyramid
    for (int i = 1; i < n; i++){
        for (int j = 1; j < i+1; j++){
            cout <<" * ";
        }
        cout << endl ;
    }
 
    // For printing the lower part of pyramid
    for (int i = n; i > 0; i--){
        for (int j = i; j > 0; j--){
            cout <<  " * ";
        }
        cout << endl ;
    }
}
 
// Driver program
int main()
{
    pattern(6);
    return 0;
}

C




// C program to print the pyramid pattern
#include <stdio.h>
 
void pattern(int n)
{
    for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {
        for (int j = 1; j <= i; j++) {
            printf("* ");
        }
        printf("\n");
    }
 
    // For printing the lower part of pyramid
    for (int i = n - 1; i >= 1; i--) {
        for (int j = 1; j <= i; j++) {
            printf("* ");
        }
        printf("\n");
    }
}
 
// Driver program
int main()
{
    pattern(6);
    return 0;
}

        // part of the pyramid
        for (int i = 1; i < n; i++)
        {
            for (int j = 1; j < i+1; j++)
            {
                System.out.print(" * ");
            }
            System.out.println();
        }
     
        // For printing the lower
        // part of pyramid
        for (int i = n; i > 0; i--)
        {
            for (int j = i; j > 0; j--)
            {
                System.out.print(" * ");

            System.out.println();
        }
    }
     
    // Driver program
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        pattern(6);
    }
}

    for i in range (1, n+1):
        for j in range (1, i+1):
            print (" *",end=" ")
        print()
     
    # for printing the middle and lower part of pyramid
    for i in range (n, 1, -1):

        print()

    {
        for ($j = 1; $j < $i+1; $j++)
        {
            echo " * ";
        }
        echo "\n" ;
    }
 
    // For printing the lower part
    // of pyramid
    for ($i = $n; $i > 0; $i--)

Javascript




<script>
 
// JavaScript program to print Pyramid pattern
function pattern(n)
{
     
    // For printing the upper
    // part of the pyramid
    for(var i = 1; i < n; i++)
    {
        for(var j = 1; j < i + 1; j++)
        {
            document.write(" * ");
        }
        document.write("<br>");
    }
     
    // For printing the lower part of pyramid
    for(var i = n; i > 0; i--)
    {
        for(var j = i; j > 0; j--)
        {
            document.write(" * ");
        }
        document.write("<br>");
    }
}
 
// Driver code
pattern(6);
 
// This code is contributed by rdtank

Output :
