Drawing a rectangle

  • 4
Expressive drawing using the modest tools of pseudographics is the same as minimalism in music. At least, some critics on Earth think so. Well, let's heed their words and do some drawing. Let's enter two numbers m and n, and draw a rectangle of eights. The rectangle will be m eights high and n eights wide.

continuously print 8 (n) no. of times in single line, once it done change the line repeat it for (m) no. of times hint : double for loop

I cleared about this mission this mission doesn't want m x n = 8 they want to see 8 in this result such as input>>> n = 5 , m = 3 Result:: 888 888 888 888 888 ==OR== input>> n = 2, m = 10 Result:: 8888888888 8888888888 .... I think It can help you to understand... Good Luck

Seems, the conditions were being described by a very lazy person as it could have been described a bit more detailed, considering we don't deal with the geometry on a daily basis, and neither all of us Native EN speakers. So, the task wasn't hard, the hard part was to figure out what they want from us. Nevertheless, the extra skills of being able to understand poorly explained description have been achieved.

I think so

I don't understand this - The program should display a n x m rectangle made of eights. 3*4 = 12, so maybe rectangle of 12th?

Ok, I believe I got it, three rows and 4 columns

It was so absolutely obvious once I moved the next line within the loop what I was doing wrong. My code was right, but new lines were being created before numbers. What it tells me is that the compiler truly does go line by line.

Not sure if this will really help anyone out but; I renamed m as rows and n as columns. It might help you get a better understanding of which loop is doing what.

Don't print n*m. It just wants you print the number eight.

for(int i=0; i<8; i++){
          for(int x=0; x < 4;x++){
What's the problem how many times in rows display the text???

If you need help, something isn't right in your code, the server won't accept your solution (even if you are 100% sure that it is correct). Describe your question/issue in the HELP section at codegym.cc/help.

Your program should be reading a keyboard input. Do not explicitly indicate a constant in your for loop conditions
for(int i=0; i<8; i++) { // I am talking about i < 8
          for(int x=0; x < 4;x++){ // and this x < 4
               System.out.print(n*m); // Watch out for this...
And also, your program should just be printing the number '8' when making the box.
