# Python Program for Printing Hollow Pyramid Star Pattern

## Print Hollow Pyramid Star Pattern

In this Python Program, we will be discussing about how to write a program to print Hollow Pyramid Star Pattern. In this pattern, there are n number of rows and have to take care first printing a spaces and then printing stars with spaces using while loop with this condition k != (2 * i – 1). So, User have to enter a single value, that will be determine as a number of rows of the pattern. With the help of “Nested For Loop and While Loop” , we will print the Hollow Pyramid Star Pattern. ### Working:

Step 1. Start

Step 2. Take number of rows as input from the user and stored it into num.

Step 3. Initialized a variable k to zero.

Step 4. Run a loop ‘i’ number of times to iterate through all the rows which is Starting from i=1 to num+1.

Step 5. Run a nested loop inside the main loop for printing spaces which is starting from j=i to num.

Step 6. Run a While untill k != (2 * i – 1) this condition is satisfied, Inside the while loop, Check if k == 0 or k == 2 * i – 2 then, print Stars for this pattern.

Step 7. Else if condition is not satisfied then, print spaces.

Step 8. Increase k by k + 1.

Step 9. Outside the while loop, k variable will re-initialized with zero.

Stop 10. Move to the next line by printing a new line using print() function.

Step 11. Run a for loop outside the main loop for printing stars which is starting from i=0 to 2 * num – 1.

Step 12. Stop

### Python Program:

```num = int(input("Enter the Number: "))
k = 0
for i in range(1, num+1):
for j in range(i, num):
print(" ",end="")
while k != (2 * i - 1):
if k == 0 or k == 2 * i - 2:
print("*", end="")
else:
print(" ", end="")
k = k+1
k = 0
print()

for i in range(0, 2 * num - 1):
print("*", end="")
