Solution

#### Note:

This solution was written on an old version of Exercism. The tests below might not correspond to the solution code, and the exercise may have changed since this code was written.

Compute Pascal's triangle up to a given number of rows.

In Pascal's Triangle each number is computed by adding the numbers to the right and left of the current position in the previous row.

``````    1
1 1
1 2 1
1 3 3 1
1 4 6 4 1
# ... etc
``````

Refer to the Exercism CoffeScript page for getting started with CoffeeScript.

In order to run the test, you can run the test file from the exercise directory:

``````jasmine-node --coffee .
``````
