Pascal’s Coin Flipping Cheat Sheet #shorts

Blaise Pascal’s Triangle displays the array of binomial coefficients in a triangle that holds a different meaning from seemingly every angle. From the odd numbers creating a fractal similar to the Sierpinski triangle to generating a full Fibonacci Sequence, Pascal’s triangle portrays mathematical beauty — and also keeps track of coin flips. Buried in the layers is a perfect expansion of probabilities of binomial outcomes that goes on forever.

And although we refer to it as Pascal’s Triangle, it’s not actually Pascal’s. Mathematicians in China, India, Persia, and even France centuries before Pascal completed his Treatise on Arithmetical Triangle in 1665.
