    Question Help please??

    I'm doing a project for my computer science class and I am printing a cake out using ASCII symbols. Running it will let you choose between having 25, 11, 5, 3, or 1 candle(s) on the cake, like this, respectively:
    " ___|||||||||||||||||||||||||___ "
    " __________|||||||||||__________ "
    " _____________|||||_____________ "
    " ______________|||______________ "
    " _______________|_______________ "

    I need some help on how to print these lines using loops.

    I haven't really tried anything yet. I'm still pretty new to programming and I don't really know where to start

    If you don't know how to write a loop, take a look at the tutorial: The for Statement (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)

    The program needs to print several lines (use a loop to control the number of lines)
    and it needs to print different characters on each line (use a loop for each different character)
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
