At the 11:20 mark, the slide and the speaker says that "11 x 14 = 165", which is incorrect. Instead, 11 x 15 = 165.
An explanation of what Pascal's Triangle is, how it is formed, and several different patterns inside of the triangle. Very cool patterns can be found inside, and this video helps explain them clearly and concisely, so you can understand them.

Great video! I enjoy looking at and learning about all the different patterns found in Pascal's Triangle. I did notice that when he was discussing the pattern of prime numbers beginning a row of their multiples, he said that 11 x 14 was 165. This should have been 11 x 15. Other than that one mistake, I really loved this video.
