#include <stdio.h>
 
long factorial(int);
 
int main()
{
   int i, n, c;
 
   printf("Enter the number of rows you wish to see in pascal triangle\n");
   scanf("%d",&n);
 
   for ( i = 0 ; i < n ; i++ )
   {
      for ( c = 0 ; c <= ( n - i - 2 ) ; c++ )
         printf(" ");
 
      for( c = 0 ; c <= i ; c++ )
         printf("%ld ",factorial(i)/(factorial(c)*factorial(i-c)));
 
      printf("\n");
   }
 
   return 0;
}
 
long factorial(int n)
{
   int c;
   long result = 1;
 
   for( c = 1 ; c <= n ; c++ )
         result = result*c;
 
   return ( result );
}
