Concerning triangular elements in FEM, which option is not correct about the mathematical formula of Pascal’s triangle?
(a) It contains the terms in two coordinates only
(b) The position of the terms can be viewed as the nodes of a triangular element
(c) The position of the first and last terms of a row is at the vertices of a triangular element
(d) A triangular element of order 2 corresponds to the second row
The question was posed to me during a job interview.
