I'm trying to make a pattern that looks like this: enter image description here

And am given this code to start:

import static java.lang.System.*;

class TriangleWord
private String word;

public TriangleWord()
    word = "";

public TriangleWord(String w)

public void setWord(String w)
    word = w;

public String toString()


There's also a runner involved. Please help!!
