Re: Triangle program for beginner
Suppose we give an index number to each row as follows: the first row get index number 0, the next row gets number 1, etc. My question to you: how may zeros are there on a line with index number i?
kind regards,

Re: Triangle program for beginner
How many zeros are there on the first line (the index value of that line is 0)?
How many zeros are there on the second line (the index value of that line is 1)?
How many zeros are there on the third line (the index value of that line is 2)?
How many zeros are there on the fourth line (the index value of that line is 3)?
How many zeros are there .. ... ..... ... (the index value of that line is i)?
kind regards,

Re: Triangle program for beginner
Do you have a piece of paper?
Write the characters for triangle just like you put in the first post. But leave some room on the side.
Now go down the side of the triangle you just wrote the characters for and place a row number/index next to each row. Start at the top with row 0, then 1 on the next row and so on until all the rows have numbers on them.
Now look at any row, and see how many zeros are on that row. Look at the row number. What is the relationship between the number of zeros on a row and the row number you wrote at the side of the row?

Re: Triangle program for beginner
Next you need to look at how to use a for loop and the print statement to print numbers all in a row.

Re: Triangle program for beginner
for(int power = 0; power<13; power ++){
system.out.println(''+mathe.pow(10, power.)
}

Re: Triangle program for beginner
What prints when you execute your code?
Do you get compiler errors with your code?
Why are you using the mathe.pow() method?

Re: Triangle program for beginner
Well that provides a ton of valuable information. Do you think that posting your latest code, error messages and a detailed description of what happens when you run your program would help us? Or should we just guess?

Re: Triangle program for beginner
Please explain. Copy and paste the full text of the errors here.
Where did you get the code you posted in post#9?
Do you know how to read the API doc where the classes and methods are defined? Here's a link:

Re: Triangle program for beginner
Oh, so this is not one of those Triangle shape programs. It simply requires the powers of 10 to be output. Well that is even easier.
