Why is the answer 113399 and not 139?

Follow one of the iterations of the outer loop (either 1, 3, or 9), and see what happens. What does the inner loop do during this one iteration of the outer loop?

for x =1, for j = 0, print 1 and then continue to j=1, print 1, but j= 1 , break the inner loop, continue the outer loop.Output so far : 1 1
for x = 3, for j =0 , print 3, continue to j =1, print 3, break inner loop, continue outer loop. Output so far 1 1 3 3
for x = 5, for j = 0, continue inner loop.for x =5, for j =1, continue inner loop. For j =2 , continue inner loop.
for x=7, for j =0 , continue inner loop. For x = 7, for j=1, continue inner loop. For j =2 , continue inner loop.
for y=9, for j=0, print 9, continue inner loop. For y =9, j=1, print 9 , break inner loop and continue outer loop. But the outer loop comes to the end.
Output 1 1 3 3 9 9
