Assume that R is a positive integer and that f and b are single characters. If b is not given, use '.' . If f is not given, use '#'.

Ex

>>getatriangle(4,'@','-')

ans =

---@---

--@@@--

-@@@@@-

@@@@@@@

>> getatriangle(5)

ans =

....#....

Hi.

R = 20; f = '@'; b = '-';

max_num=2*R-1; fprintf('\n'); for i=1:R S1=repmat(b,[1 R-i]); S2=repmat(f,[1 2*i-1]); S=[S1 S2 S1]; fprintf('%s\n',S); end
