    Default Inverted Equilatieral Triangle (Asterisks) - Not Equilateral :-(

    My assignment is to write a program that asks for the number of lines and then prints an inverted equilateral triangle across the number of lines. As far as I can see this program isn't printing the spaces properly and thus it is printing a right angled triangle and I don't know why. Can anybody help?
    Thanks in advance

    public class TestCW
    {
       public static void main (String [] args)
    	{
    	System.out.println ("Enter number");
    	int input, var1, var2, var3;
    	input = KBInput.readInt();
     
    	for (var1 = input; var1 >= 0; var1 --)
    	{
    	   System.out.println();
    		   for (var2 = var1; var2 < var1; var2 ++)
    			{
    				System.out.print(" ");
    			}
    			for (var3 = (var1 * 2 - 1); var3 > 0; var3 --)
    			{
    				System.out.print("*");
    			}
    	}
    	}
    }
