First, your answer doesn't solve his problem, as his expected was lines 
of 1 to 10 stars, not 0 to 9.

Second, this smells a bit like homework, and if they haven't learned the 
results of string times integer, then using that operation wouldn't be 
in their tool kit, so having a loop to build that operator makes sense.
