Pascal triangle to a matrix - Tonig00 - 11-22-2019 08:45 AM
Hello I need some help. I do not program often and when I do I have doubts. I try to put the values of the Pascal triangle, 1 --- m1(1,1) 1 1 --- m1(2,1) m1(2,2) 1 2 1 --- m1(3,1), etc 1 3 3 1 …………….. to a matrix that I call "m1" up to "f" lines, in the following way: EXPORT Tri_Pa(f) BEGIN LOCAL n,m; LOCAL m1; FOR n FROM 0 TO f DO FOR m FROM 0 TO n DO m1(n,m):=COMB(n,m); END; END; END; But the program stops in the line "m1(n,m):=…", and says: "Invalid input". How should I define the matrix to avoid the error? Thanks in advance for your help Toni RE: Pascal triangle to a matrix - toml_12953 - 11-22-2019 01:07 PM

You get an error because: - You need to define m1 as a matrix - Matrix indices start at 1 and not 0 So here is a working version of your program : Code: `EXPORT Tri_Pa(f)` Note that you can also generate the same matrix using just the MAKEMAT function: Code: `EXPORT Tri_Pa(f)` RE: Pascal triangle to a matrix - Tonig00 - 11-22-2019 07:14 PM
Thanks very much Both works, and very interesting how the matrix works and the IFTE function. Thanks |
