Smile assistance with an algorithm

hello, I'm having trouble developing an algorithm that uses a sequence (1-5) and fills in a 5 x 5 rectangle. Here I'll show you the map. Any help is appreciated. I'll return the favor somehow, thanks.

Here's my email


1 2 3 4 5

5 1 2 3 4

4 5 1 2 3

3 4 5 1 2

2 3 4 5 1

for (i=0; i<5; i++)
for (j=0; j<5; j++){
numberarray[(j+i)%5][(j+i)%5] = i+1;

let me know if this works - i'm not at my box where i can test it.

Smile thanks

Thank you for your help. Well it's not supposed to show the numbers, but pictures. Like a quilt. Sorry I did not mention that part

each one of the numbers symbolizes a block of color.

1 is yellow
2 is red
3 is blue
4 is green
5 is orange

Once again sorry.

i don't see that it makes it any different... just have each number represent a color...

if(num ==1) then
printf("green") or drawpicture(green)...

or whatever you may need to do.
