the logic of an algorithm does NOT depend on the programming language!

If this is a "classroom" exercise then you should really join the beginners forum which is for newbies (to a subject) and students.

There are different ways to do this:
brute force:
Code:
display 1
display 1 2
etc

more sophisticated:
Code:
initialise a table to 1, 2, etc
loop 1 to number of entries
   loop 1 to current outer loop vcontrol value
      display table item(inner loop control value)
   end inner loop
end outer loop

and other ways
