Can you suggest a way to place Pacal's triangle neatly into an SWP document? I tried doing it with a table but that yielded a cumbersome result, far too wide and hard to understand. The only alternative I can think of is to do it as a graphic and import it into SWP.

I guess that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I did an Internet search for a LaTeX version of Pascal's triangle and found:

Thanks for your usual quick reply.

In the eye of the beholder indeed. I wanted to get at least to n = 9, and this would get way too wide. I used the other strategy suggested.

## Hello, This strategy

Hello,

This strategy produces a "tight" triangle but it is not elegant. Create an n x 1 matrix. Place a 1 in the first cell. Next, place a 1 in the second, followed by two (or three) spaces (shift + space bar, shift + space bar), and then enter another 1. Continue in this fashion. You can modify the width of the triangle by using other types of spaces such as a thin space.

## Thanks. I started doing this

Thanks. I started doing this just before your note. Your note envouraged me, and I got to n = 9. A hassle when you get to two and three digit entries, but it ended up looking OK.
