Pascal’s triangle is an interesting mathematical sequence. It is often written as a triangle, starting with , then . To generate the next row, you add the two numbers above to form another one. So the next row in the sequence is then , and so on (sequence A007318 in OEIS).
One interesting property of Pascal’s triangle is the generation of binomials.
To calculate , you can look at the 𝟦-th row (listed above and when starting to count at 𝟢) and determine
This program generates Pascal’s sequence in a rather unusual shape, looking a bit like a crown.
