Philosopher, mathematician, inventor, and scientific genius are just a few of the things he became in his life. Pascal helped create many things for this world as a whole, like when he invented the barometer, the hydraulic press, and of course (my personal favorite) the syringe. To the mathematical world he was a god, and he is most well known for creating ?Pascal?s Triangle? and the adding machine, otherwise known as a calculator (then it was called the ?Pascaline.?)
As a boy Pascal took his free time to study mathematics, specifically geometry. He was intrigued by the fact that so many things could be quite possibly perfect and so precise. He immediately began drawing his own conclusions in the world of geometrics. That was when he began to discover things such as ?Pascal?s triangle,? whi
