The author writes:

Pascal's triangle is a mathematical structure with 2 diagonal lines of 1s and each number is the sum of the two above it.

It is arguably one of the most beautiful things in maths. Within it you can find:

• Powers of 2,
• Powers of 11,
• Triangle numbers,
• Tetahedral numbers,
• Fibonnaci numbers,
• Polynomial coefficients,
• and more!

Note: "je ne sais quoi" is French for "I don't know what".
