Keywords: Binomial Coefficients, Pascal Triangle, Pythagorean Triple, Primitive Pythagorean Triple


The concept of Pascal’s triangle has fascinated mathematicians for several centuries. Similarly, the idea of Pythagorean triples prevailing for more than two millennia continue to surprise even today with its abundant properties and generalizations. In this paper, I have demonstrated ways through four theorems to determine Pythagorean triples using entries from Pascal’s triangle.
