The concept is simple: each number inside each box represents the sum of the number written above it and the number written on its left.
This triangle created in 1665 by Blaise Pascal has become one of the most representative images of the history of science, mainly because it contains numerous mathematical patterns.
For example, the first column in the left side shows number “1” numbers, the next column shows countable numbers “1,2,3,4…”, the third column shows triangular numbers “1,3,6,10…”, the fourth column shows tetrahedral numbers “1,4,10,20…”, and so on.
It also contains probability patterns, polynomial numbers, horizontal sum sequences and the Fibonacci sequence, among other things that can be seen here.
Is math in everything?
