Re: crack this triangle

Hi sathru;

Welcome to the forum. What do they want? The next row? One particular number?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
