i am not sure with it since i have never tried such,but
What i can say is,you try using for loops and since these are Strings,so take an array of string,in which you store your values,at 0,1,2 index positions,later in your for loop you can use,string class concat method with a space in it........and try to display it....

i dont know if this helps you to atleast some extent......

Well, what have you tried? Show us your effort so far, and we'll try to help you get going.

Posting complete code that solves the problem will not help you learn, so that's being frowned upon here.

This is a homework question that has been posted before in this thread.

Like in that thread, I say DoYourOwnHomework. If you give it a go, and have some specific problems, please post the code you have so far. Then someone will help, I'm sure.

Also, this is a Beginner question, not Advanced.

Recursion was one of the hints in the other thread. Are you comfortable with recursion at all? Maybe we can provide some examples that solve other problems and see if you can apply it to your problem.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
I agree. Here's the link:
