Arithmetic Triangle

Luis Dias Ferreira


The product of the first $n$ terms of an arithmetic progression may be developed in a polynomial of $n$ terms. Each one of them presents a coefficient $C_{nk}$ that is independent from the initial term and the common difference of the progression. The most interesting point is that one may construct an "Arithmetic Triangle'', displaying these coefficients, in a similar way one does with Pascal's Triangle. Moreover, some remarkable properties, mainly concerning factorials, characterize the Triangle. Other related `triangles' -- eventually treated as matrices -- also display curious facts, in their linear \emph{modus operandi}, such as successive "descendances''.
