# Topic: Pascals triangle

 Generating Pascals Triangle Pascal's Triangle is a well known mathematical pattern. According to Yunze He, "Pascal's" triangle was first developed during the Song Dynasty by a mathematician named Hue Yang. The simplest view of Pascal's Triangle is that it may be generated by affixing a one a either end of the new row and then generating all numbers in between by by adding together the two numbers above it. www.geocities.com /CapeCanaveral/Launchpad/5577/musings/Pascals.html   (515 words)

 Pascals triangle - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about Pascals triangle   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20) In Pascal's triangle, each number is the sum of the two numbers immediately above it, left and right – for example, 2 is the sum of 1 and 1, and 4 is the sum of 3 and 1. It is named after French mathematician Blaise Pascal, who used it in his study of probability. When plotted at equal distances along a horizontal axis, the numbers in the rows give the binomial probability distribution (with equal probability of success and failure) of an event, such as the result of tossing a coin. encyclopedia.farlex.com /Pascals+triangle   (210 words)

 All You Ever Wanted to Know About Pascal's Triangle and more Pascal's Triangle was originally developed by the ancient Chinese, but Blaise Pascal was the first person to discover the importance of all of the patterns it contained. A number in the triangle can also be found by nCr (n Choose r) where n is the number of the row and r is the element in that row. When all the odd numbers (numbers not divisible by 2) in Pascal's Triangle are filled in (fl) and the rest (the evens) are left blank (white), the recursive Sierpinski Triangle fractal is revealed (see figure at near right), showing yet another pattern in Pascal's Triangle. ptri1.tripod.com   (1016 words)

Pascal started using all his sparetime trying to learn geometry, and as the great natural genius he was, he soon started to discover many properties of the figures.

 Math Forum: Ask Dr. Math FAQ: Pascal's Triangle Pascal's Triangle is an arithmetical triangle you can use for some neat things in mathematics. The other main area where Pascal's Triangle shows up is in Probability, where it can be used to find Combinations. In about 1654 Blaise Pascal started to investigate the chances of getting different values for rolls of the dice, and his discussions with Pierre de Fermat are usually considered to have laid the foundation for the theory of probability. mathforum.org /dr.math/faq/faq.pascal.triangle.html   (751 words)

 BBC - h2g2 - Pascals Triangle In 1653, a french mathematician named Blaise Pascal described a triangular arrangement of numbers corresponding to the probabilities involved in flipping coins, or equivalently the number of ways to choose n objects from a group of m indistinguishable objects. One way of seeing some of these patterns is to pick a number x and color all numbers in the triangle that are evenly divisible by x with one color, and all the other numbers in the triangle with a second color. To see as much of the pattern as possible, you need to be able to see as many rows of the triangle as possible, but coloring a large number of rows like this by hand is very boring and time consuming. www.bbc.co.uk /dna/ww2/A280306   (324 words)

 Chinese Mathematics : Rebecca and Tommy The so called 'Pascal' triangle was known in China as early as 1261. In '1261 the triangle appears to a depth of six in Yang Hui and to a depth of eight in Zhu Shijiei (as in diagram 6) in 1303. It was therefore credited to Pascal due to the ingenious use he made of it in probabilities. www.roma.unisa.edu.au /07305/pascal.htm   (457 words)

 Pascals Triangle, Mathematics, Free Essays @ ChuckIII College Resources When Pascal was 19 he invented the first calculating machine that actually worked. Because of this connection, the entries in Pascal's Triangle are called the binomial coefficients.There's a pretty simple formula for figuring out the binomial coefficients (Dr. Math, 4): n!

Last check: 2007-10-20) Amplitude is the maximal displacement of particles of matter that is obtained in compressions, where the particles of matter move towards each other and pressure increases the most and in rarefactions, where the pressure lessens the most. While the pressure can be measured in pascals, the amplitude is more often referred to as sound pressure level and measured in decibels, or dBSPL, sometimes written as dBspl or dB(SPL). In fact, most sound waves consist of multiple overtones or harmonics and any sound can be thought of as being composed of sine waves (see additive synthesis). www.edscamera.com /articles/Sound   (1031 words)

 Investigations into Pascal's Triangle   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20) The entries of Pascal's triangle are found by adding the single or two numbers immediately above that entry. In the above example, the numbers in the sixth layer can be obtained directly from the first six layers of Pascal's triangle by multiplying successively each row by the entries in the sixth row. As a conclusion, it was found that the even entries far outweigh the odd entries in Pascal's Triangle. www.irishscientist.ie /2000/contents.asp?contentxml=237as.xml&contentxsl=insight3.xsl   (398 words)
