    This may look like a neatly arranged stack of numbers, but it’s actually a mathematical treasure trove. Indian mathematicians called it the Staircase of Mount Meru. In Iran, it’s the Khayyam Triangle. And in China, it’s Yang Hui’s Triangle. To much of the Western world, it’s known as Pascal’s Triangle after French mathematician Blaise Pascal,   Pascal's Arithmetical Triangle, Griffin, London, and Oxford University Press, New York, 2nd ed. , Johns Hopkins University Press, Baltimore.

      Pascal's triangle 1 Pascal's triangle In mathematics, Pascal's triangle is a triangular array of the binomial coefficients in a triangle. It is named after the French mathematician, Blaise Pascal. It is known as Pascal's triangle in much of the Western world, although other mathematicians studied it centuries before him in India, Persia, China, Germany, and Italy.[1] › 百度文库 › 语言/资格考试. He is also known for Pascal's Law on the behavior of fluid pressure. Around Pascal conducted his studies on the Arithmetical Triangle (“Pascal's Triangle”) and its relationship to probabilities. His correspondence with Pierre de Fermat (–) in that year marks the beginning of probability ://

It can look complicated at first, but when you start to spend time with some of the incredible patterns hidden within this infinite mathematical work of art — diagonals, odds and evens, horizontal

Pascal’s triangle, in algebra, a triangular arrangement of numbers that gives the coefficients in the expansion of any binomial expression, such as (x + y) is named for the 17th-century French mathematician Blaise Pascal, but it is far e mathematician Jia Xian devised a triangular representation for the coefficients in the 11th ://   In mathematics, Pascal's triangle is a triangular array of the binomial much of the Western world, it is named after the French mathematician Blaise Pascal, although other mathematicians studied it centuries before him in India, Persia (Iran), China, Germany, and Italy.

The rows of Pascal's triangle are conventionally enumerated starting with row n = 0 at the top (the 0th row). Pascal's triangle is called Yang Hui's triangle in China. The "Yang Hui's triangle" was known in China in the early 11th century by the Chinese mathematician Jia Xian (–).

Pascal's triangle had already been around for centuries before he wrote his book about it in I think we need a more up-to-date version of Pascal's triangle for the 21st century. So: let's suppose the little ball we drop into the machine is an ELECTRON, and let's turn on a MAGNETIC FIELD!

Pascal's Triangle was originally developed by the ancient Chinese, but Blaise Pascal was the first person to discover special patterns contained inside the triangle. They teach his ideas in various schools online in math courses. You probably also heard of this guy from your high school math teacher.
