Canadian Computing Competition: 2012 Stage 1, Junior #3
You have been asked to take a small icon that appears on the screen of a smart telephone and scale it up so it looks bigger on a regular computer screen.
The icon will be encoded as characters (
*) in a ~3 \times 3~ grid as follows:
*x* xx * *
Write a program that accepts a positive integer scaling factor and outputs the scaled icon. A scaling factor of ~k~ means that each character is replaced by a ~k \times k~ grid consisting only of that character.
The input will be a positive integer ~k~ such that ~k < 25~.
The output will be ~3k~ lines, which represent each individual line scaled by a factor of ~k~ and repeated ~k~ times. A line is scaled by a factor of ~k~ by replacing each character in the line with ~k~ copies of the character.
