    Question Help with ASCII star shape



    I am having an awful time submitting the right program for this star pattern. Any help will be appreciated. This is the only one I am having trouble with.

    2.4: Star Pattern
    Write a program that displays the following pattern:


    *
    ***
    *****
    *******
    *****

    Help please! Can someone write this correctly for me?
    I input the following:

    // Program Challenge 2.4
    2
    3 public class PC24
    4 {
    5 public static void main(String[ ] args)
    6
    7 /** \n Newline Advances the cursor to the next line for subsequent printing p.42*/
    8
    9 {
    10
    11 System.out.println(" *\n"+ " ***\n"+" *****\n"+"*******\n"+ " *****\n");
    12
    13
    14 }
    15 }
