Finding the pattern

  • #1
I have encountered such a triangular set of numbers:

1
-8 -7
28 -16 9
-56 -65 -22 -7
70 112 51 4 1

Apart from the obvious first column being (x-1)^8, what can you find for other columns?

thanks, it is simply hard.

The 'hypothenuse' seems to play a role in that

1
-8 -7
28 -16 9

-7 - 1 = -8
-7 - 9 = -16

As far as the other numbers go I havent gotten them yet, but just putting this out there as a possible stepping stone
