I could write the program for you but I'd rather prod you into working
it out yourself as I think you will learn more in the process.
What code would you write to generate the first line? It is a loop, but
At the beginning of each row you want to print the row number. What one
statement would you add and where would you put it to do that.
BTW I would find your questions and comments easier to read if you
divided sentences with capitalization and punctuation.
Be sure to reply-all.
