    suppose you want to know for example \(_5C_2\) or "five choose two" the number of ways to choose 2 things out of a set of five (you have seen that notation right?)

    ok so here is how it relates to pascal's triangle go down to level 5 on the triangle, the one what begins \(1,5\)

    might be confusing because the top level is level 0 in any case go to 1, 5 10, 5 , 1 the 1 is the number of ways to choose no items i.e. \(_5C_0\) the next 5 is \(_5C1\) the 10 is \(_5C_2\) the next 10 is \(_5C_3\) and so on

    hope that is more or less clear it is true for every entry in every level
