             {
            printf("%d",j);
                 }

Explanation:
  1. The program starts with initializing
    • rows → Taken from user to print those many rows
    • i,j,k → used as variables.
    • left,right → for printing left and right part of triangle.
    • count → To controll spaces
  2. printf("Enter number of rows\n");
    scanf("%d",&rows);
    Taking number of rows as input from user 
  3. for(i=1;i<=rows;i++)
    {
    For iterating number of row times 
  4. for(k=1;k<=count;k++)
        {
            printf(" ");
        }
    To print spaces left side to achieve shape of pyramid.For example
    __1
    _232
    34543
    beside 1 we have two spaces and beside 2 we have one space and no space beside 3.this is for 3 rows.
  5. for(j=i;j<=left;j++)
        {
            printf("%d",j);
        }
        left+=2;
    To print left part of triangle.left+=2 is for incrementing the left by 2 times for each iteration. As if you look at the outputin Iteration 1: 1 is printed and in iteration2: 2,3 are printed  and so on
  6. if(i!=1)
           {
                   for(j=right;j>=i;j--)
                 {
                printf("%d",j);
                     }
                 
           }
            right+=2;
    To print right part of triangle which is skipped if i==1as we dont want to print any thing to the right side of 1 in first row.  right+=2 is for incrementing right by 2 for each iteration.Unlike left right is initialized to 0 as right side printing will start with even number.
    Number Pyramid right side
  7.   printf("\n");
            
    To start printing the numbers of pyramid in new line after finishing the iteration
  8. count--  is used to decrement the number of spaces to be printed beside the row to achieve the shape of pyramid.If the pyramid is for 4 rows then in 1st row 3 spaces will be printed and in 2nd row 2 spaces will be printed and so on till the end.

 Output:

Number Pyramid
