1. #### In Topic: Making a centered pyramid using an entered size

Posted 29 Oct 2012

Thank you so much for helping me out with this! It took me a while to grasp what you were trying to tell me, but it finally just clicked. Part of the issue was that I assumed that for it to go down, I'd need both variables to follow the x-- format, but I get it now.
2. #### In Topic: Making a centered pyramid using an entered size

I've written out a few bits of code for the second part, but I still keep getting a single line of stars. Should I be looking at more nested loops to put in, or would that be making this too complicated?

```for(int c = number; c <= 50; c--){
for (int d = c; d < c; d--) {

```

```for (int c = number; number <= c; number--){
for (int d = 0; d < c; d--) {

```

```for (int c = (number - 1); (number -1) <= c; number--){
for (int d = 0; d < c; c--) {

```

Thank you, I missed that off zero equation.

So if that's how you build up a triangle, by starting at zero and adding until you get to the number, and you want to do the reverse of that...

starting at the number and subtracting, maybe?

Thank you for the reply. I see where you're going with this, and I've put together a few bits of code. However, that forces the stars to straighten out instead of form a triangle.

```if (number <= 50)
for(int a = 1; a <= number; a++){
for (int b = 0; b < a; b++) {
System.out.print("*");
}
for(int c = number; c <= number - 1; c--){
for (int d = 0; d > c; c--){
System.out.print("*");
}
System.out.println();

```
4. #### In Topic: Confusion in setting char/int for formula in Celsius/Fahrenheit code

Posted 15 Oct 2012

I see what you mean. I changed it to
```  char[] type = {'C', 'c', 'f', 'F'};
```

but now receive errors for my codes
```
if (type == 'C', 'c')
if (type == 'F', 'f')
```

I get the messages
"Incompatible operand types char[] and int" and "Syntax error on token ",", * expected" respectively for both if codes.
