Blaise Pascal was born in Clermont-Ferrand on 19 June 1623. He lost his mother, Antoinette Begon, at the age of three. His father, Étienne Pascal (1588–1651), who also had an interest in science and mathematics, was a local judge and member of the “Noblesse de Robe”. He is famous for many things, one of them is Pascal’s triangle. Each number is the sum of the two directly above it. The triangle demonstrates many mathematical properties in addition to showing binomial coefficients (look at the video).
