#### Counting the Number of Dashes and Printing the Upper Part of the Axe

In order to solve the problem we first need to calculate the dashes in the left, the middle dashes, the dashes in the right and the whole length of the figure.

After we have declared and initialized the variables, we can begin drawing the figure by starting with the upper part. We can see from the examples what the structure of the first row is and we can create a loop, which recurs n times. At each iteration of the loop the middle dashes increase by 1, and the right dashes decrease by 1.

In order to use the variables we created again to draw the handle of the axe, we need to decrease the middle dashes by 1, and we need to increase the left dashed by 1.
