# Thread: Print square of numbers with positions alternating

1. ## Print square of numbers with positions alternating

Hello. I'm having some troubles with the following problem:

Write a method called printSquare that takes in two integer parameters, a min and a max, and prints the numbers in the range from min to max inclusive in a square pattern. The square pattern is easier to understand by example than by explanation, so take a look at the sample method calls and their resulting console output in the table below.

Each line of the square consists of a circular sequence of increasing integers between min and max. Each line prints a different permutation of this sequence. The first line begins with min, the second line begins with min + 1, and so on. When the sequence in any line reaches max, it wraps around back to min.

You may assume the caller of the method will pass a min and a max parameter such that min is less than or equal to max.
This is the code I have so far:

Code:
```public*static*void*printSquare(int*min,int*max){
for(int*lines=1;lines<=min;lines++){
for(int*x=min;x<=max;x++){
System.out.print(x);
}
System.out.println();
min+=1;
}
}```

• You have a long way to go with that one.
A hint for starters is that min cannot be incremented within the loop since its the control condition for lines to terminate. Doing so will result in an infinite loop.
