# Mario

## Problem to Solve

Toward the beginning of World 1-1 in Nintendo’s Super Mario Brothers, Mario must hop over adjacent pyramids of blocks, per the below.

In a file called mario.c in a folder called mario-more, implement a program in C that recreates that pyramid, using hashes (#) for bricks, as in the below:

   #  #
##  ##
###  ###
####  ####


And let’s allow the user to decide just how tall the pyramids should be by first prompting them for a positive int between, say, 1 and 8, inclusive.

Examples

Here’s how the program might work if the user inputs 8 when prompted:

$./mario Height: 8 # # ## ## ### ### #### #### ##### ##### ###### ###### ####### ####### ######## ########  Here’s how the program might work if the user inputs 4 when prompted: $ ./mario
Height: 4
#  #
##  ##
###  ###
####  ####


Here’s how the program might work if the user inputs 2 when prompted:

$./mario Height: 2 # # ## ##  And here’s how the program might work if the user inputs 1 when prompted: $ ./mario
Height: 1
#  #


If the user doesn’t, in fact, input a positive integer between 1 and 8, inclusive, when prompted, the program should re-prompt the user until they cooperate:

\$ ./mario
Height: -1
Height: 0
Height: 42
Height: 50
Height: 4
#  #
##  ##
###  ###
####  ####


Notice that width of the “gap” between adjacent pyramids is equal to the width of two hashes, irrespective of the pyramids’ heights.

### How to Test Your Code

Does your code work as prescribed when you input

• -1 (or other negative numbers)?
• 0?
• 1 through 8?
• 9 or other positive numbers?
• letters or words?
• no input at all, when you only hit Enter?

You can also execute the below to evaluate the correctness of your code using check50. But be sure to compile and test it yourself as well!

## How to Submit

1. Download your mario.c file by control-clicking or right-clicking on the file in your codespace’s file browser and choosing Download.
2. Go to CS50’s Gradescope page.
3. Click Problem Set 1: Mario (More).
4. Drag and drop your mario.c file to the area that says Drag & Drop. Be sure it has that exact filename! If you upload a file with a different name, the autograder likely will fail when trying to run it, and ensuring you have uploaded files with the correct filename is your responsibility!
