    6 factorial n! = n*(n-1)! 0! = 1 so f.e: 5! = 5*4! = 5 * 4 * 3! = 5 * 4 * 3 * 2! = 5 * 4 * 3 * 2 * 1! = 5 * 4 * 3 * 2 * 1 * 0! = 5 * 4 * 3 * 2 * 1 * 1

    1 1 1 n=2 1 2 1 n=3 1 3 3 1 n=4 1 4 6 4 1 for (x+y)^n, the above are the coefficients (x+y)^2=x^2+2xy+y^2 (make sure each terms has exponents add up to be 2) (x+y)^3=x^3+3x^2y+3xy^2+y^3 (each term has exponents add up to be 3) (x+y)^4=x^4+4x^3y+6x^2y^2+4xy^3+y^4 ( each term as exponents add up be 4)

    we can continue the triangle for n=5 and so on... n=5: coefficients are 1 5 10 10 5 1 (x+y)^5=x^5+5x^4y+10x^3y^2+10x^2y^3+5xy^4+y^5
