Can anyone help me? I'm totally lost.

I'm trying to write a nested loop code segment that produces the following ouput:

1
1 2
1 2 3
1 2 3 4

Thanks for your help.

easy:
for (int i = 1; i <= 4; ++i) {
   for (int j = 1; j <= i; ++j) {
      cout << j;
   }
   cout << endl;
}

Looks a bit like homework. We can (may) not provide complete solutions to homework, but we can assist you.

Is there any code you've tried or written so far? Even when it's not working (yet), we can help you to get it right.

This is the correct answer

for (int i = 1; i <= 4; ++i) {
                for (int j = 1; j <= i; ++j) {
                   cout << j << " ";
                }
                cout << endl;
              }

cout<<endl<<"Thanks for you help."<<endl

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <iostream.h>

void OutputIt( int n ) {
    if ( n != 0 ) {
       OutputIt(n-1);
       cout << n << ' ';
    }
}

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
    OutputIt( 1 ); cout << endl;
    OutputIt( 2 ); cout << endl;
    OutputIt( 3 ); cout << endl;
    OutputIt( 4 ); cout << endl;
    return( 0 );
}

Thank you, thank you!  I'd like to thank all of the little people who contributed, however insignificantly to this production.  You LIKE me! you REALLY LIKE Me!

#include "stdafx.h"

#include <string>
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
     std::string szString;
     for (int n=1;n<=4;n++)
     {
          char szBuffer[32];
          itoa(n,szBuffer,10);
          szString+=szBuffer;
          cout << szString <<endl;
          szString += " ";
     }
     return 0;
}

my contribution to this party :) - this was all my own work and I will thank no one except the great almighty - whomever that might be

I've improved my algorithm:

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <iostream.h>

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
  cout << "Nested loop example:" << endl;
  cout << "1" << endl;
  cout << "1 2" << endl;
  cout << "1 2 3" << endl;
  cout << "1 2 3 4" << endl;
}

Simpler is always better.  Just be sure to keep the first line or the professor won't know how hard you worked.

Michelle21221,
Ignore KangRoo's post.  It is one thing to bring a polished apple to the teacher.  It's quite another to backup a truck full of them to the classroom door...
