I have code for a right traingle that you can input information and it gives back the rest and now I need to make it so that it will draw the triangle at the end, how can I do this?
here's the code: Yes, it's long

private static void drawTriangle() { String s; for(int j = 1; j <= a; j++) { s = getNextLine(j); System.out.println(s); } s = " "; for(int j = 0; j < b; j++) s += ""; System.out.println(s); } private static String getNextLine(int y) { int width = (int)((y * b)/a); String s = " "; for(int j = 0; j < width; j++) s += " "; s += "\\"; return s; }

You can also use drawPolygon
I agree. Here's the link:
