int main()
{
int n, i,  c, a = 1;

printf("Enter the number of rows of Floyd's triangle to print\n");
scanf("%d", &n);

for (i = 1; i <= n; i++)
{
for (c = 1; c <= i; c++)
{
printf("%d ",a);
a++;
}
printf("\n");
}

return 0;
}

### C program to print Floyd's triangle using recursion

``````#include <stdio.h>

void print_floyd(int);

int main()
{
int n, i,  c, a = 1;

printf("Input number of rows of Floyd's triangle to print\n");
scanf("%d", &n);

print_floyd(n);

return 0;
}

void print_floyd(int n) {
static int row = 1, c = 1;
int d;

if (n <= 0)
return;

for (d = 1; d <= row; ++d)
printf("%d ", c++);

printf("\n");
row++;

print_floyd(--n);
}
