I am quite new to matlab and just like in python I want to get familiar with loops in matlab therefore I was trying to print the following pattern.

When I am using the disp() function everything is being printed on the same line.

Hi,
It is my understanding that you know the logic of printing the pattern. We will need 2 “for” loops for this pattern, an outer loop to control the total number of lines and an inner loop to control the number of “#” in one line.
Instead of using the “disp()” function, you can use the “fprintf()” function to print the output in different lines.
You can refer to the documentation for loop and fprintf for further understanding.
Hope it helps!
for i = 1:5
for j = i:5
fprintf('#')
end
fprintf(' ')
end

str = '#' ;
for i = 5:-1:1
s = repmat(str,1,i) ;
fprintf('%s\n',s) ;
fprintf('\n')
end
