Hi everyone!

I'm new to the forum and I wanted to share my Pascal's square. The criterion is the same of the triangle. Numbers are obtained from the sum of the numbers in each row and each column. I hope you enjoy it! Any feedback is welcome.

Pascal's square

1 1 2 4 8

1 1 2 4 8

2 2 4 8 16

4 4 8 16 32

8 8 16 32 64

16 16 32 64 128

HI Mpmath;

Welcome to the forum. Yours is a little different than Pascals triangle.

Notice that each number is the sum of the two on top of it.

Hi,

Thanks for the comment.

But tris square it's not so similar to the Pascal's triangle, because numbers are very different (I notice that all of the square are exponents of 2) and they follow this rule:

1 + 1 = 2

+ + +

1 + 1 = 2

= = =

2 + 2 = 2

Lying, not a chance. You did reveal a new fact, I thought you were older than that.

It can be lonely. You can always talk to me or someone else in here.

No one there at Yale likes me. I am the handicapped kid using a walker sitting in the corner reading about stem cell research. Literally.

Just joking. I thought that would make you laugh. Irony is often funny.
