Given an integer N, the task is to print the pattern below for the given value of N.

For N = 5, below is the given pattern: Examples:

Input: N = 4
Output:
1020304017018019020
**50607014015016
****809012013
******10011

Input: N = 3
Output:
10203010011012
**4050809
****607

Approach: The idea to understand the logic behind the given pattern is stated below:

By looking closely, we see that by replacing in-between zeroes with spaces, the pattern can be seen more clearly. The pattern is further divided into three different patterns.

1. Case 1: Asterisk (*) character pattern follows a sequence from 0 and adds two more asterisks in each row, where the row is equal to N.
2. Case 2: In this part, the pattern is very simple to understand. i.e the number of columns and rows will be equal to N and follows a sequence like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…
3. Case 3: Follow-up or bottom-up sequence is the interesting part where the numbers are represented from bottom to top. Below is the implementation of the above approach:
