Do some math to hardcode the drawings. We can consider this as two operations: line across and lines down.

### Order

Do the operations in the order: across, down, across, down, across.

### Line Across

Print $(H + 1) / 2$ stars. Let’s call this number $W$ because it is the width of the eight.

### Line Down

Print a star; print $W − 2$ spaces; print another star. (next line)

Do the above $W − 2$ times.

## Time complexity

$\mathcal{O}(H^2)$
