In this tutorial you will learn about the C Program to Print Plus Star Pattern and its application with practical example.
C Program to Print Plus Star Pattern
In this tutorial, we will learn to create a C program that will Print Plus Star Pattern in C programming.
Before starting with this tutorial, we assume that you are the best aware of the following C programming topics:
- Operators in C Programming.
- Basic Input and Output function in C Programming.
- Basic C programming.
- For loop in C programming.
- Conditional Statements in C programming.
What is a pattern?
The patterns can be any shape or design drawn on the screen i.e. triangle, rectangle, pyramid, any other shape. In the C programming language, the patterns are generated using loops and iterative statements.
What is Printing Plus Star Pattern?
The plus star pattern means to create a plus-symbol like a pattern on the screen to the user. The plus symbol uses “*” to draw the pattern
1. Declaring the required variables for the program.
2. Taking the input number of rows for plus pattern from the user.
3. Generating the pattern using the nested for loop.
4. Printing the plus shaped pattern.
5. End the program.
In today’s tutorial, we will create a program, that will Print Plus Star Pattern using nested for loops. First, we will be taking the size in form of rows from the user. Then we will use nested for loops to create a pattern looking like the plus symbol. Then we will print the pattern using the printf() function.
Below is an example of Print Plus Star Pattern.
//declaring the required variable for the program.
int i, j, rw;
//rw = it will hold the integer value for the input
//declaring the required variables for the program.
printf("Enter Plus Pattern Rows = ");
//scanning the input from the user
printf("Plus Star Pattern\n");
//generating the pattern usingfor loops
for(i = 1; i <= rw * 2 - 1; i++)
if(i != rw)
for(j = 1; j <= rw; j++)
if(j == rw)
//printing the plus symbol
for(j = 1; j <= rw * 2 - 1; j++)
In the above program, we have first initialized the required variable.
- rw = it will hold the integer value.
- j = it will hold the integer value.
- i = it will hold the integer value.
Input the number of rows for the pattern.
Code to make the pattern on the screen.
Printing output pattern using the conditional statements and the print function.
