Pascal's and Floyd's triangle in C

05 min read

C program to print Pascal's Triangle and Floyd's Triangle in C. Pascal's Triangle is a triangular array of numbers in which those at the ends of the rows are 1 and each of the others is the sum of the nearest two numbers in the row above. While Floyd's triangle is a right-angled triangular array of natural numbers. It is defined by filling the rows of the triangle with consecutive numbers, starting with a 1 in the top left corne.

1) Pascal's Triangle in C

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
{
    int rows, coef = 1, space, i, j;

    printf("Enter number of rows: ");
    scanf("%d",&rows);

    for(i=0; i<rows; i++)
    {
        for(space=1; space <= rows-i; space++)
            printf("  ");

        for(j=0; j <= i; j++)
        {
            if (j==0 || i==0)
                coef = 1;
            else
                coef = coef*(i-j+1)/j;

            printf("%4d", coef);
        }
        printf("\n");
    }

    return 0;
}

 

Output

           1
         1   1
       1   2   1
     1   3   3    1
   1  4    6   4   1
 1  5   10   10  5   1 

 

 

2) Floyd's Triangle in C

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
{
    int rows, i, j, number= 1;

    printf("Enter number of rows: ");
    scanf("%d",&rows);

    for(i=1; i <= rows; i++)
    {
        for(j=1; j <= i; ++j)
        {
            printf("%d ", number);
            ++number;
        }

        printf("\n");
    }

    return 0;
}

 

Output

1
2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9 10
