    Pascals Triangle Pascals Triangle Blas Pacal was born in France in 1623. He was a child prodigy and was fascinated by mathematics. When Pascal was 19 he invented the first calculating machine that actually worked. Many other people had tried to do the same but did not succeed. One of the topics that deeply interested him was the likelihood of an event happening (probability). This interest came to Pascal from a gambler who asked him to help him make a better guess so he could make an educated guess. In the coarse of his investigations he produced a triangular pattern that is named after him. The pattern was known at least three hundred years before Pascal had discover it. The Chinese were th ...

If one wishes to become more involved with protection of the rainforests, it is possible to adopt acres of rainforest land. For only $45, you can adopt one acre of rainforest. Your contribution funds land acquisition, legal fees, and security costs to ensure tha ...
