 Dascal triangle (Posted on 2016-02-02)
Arrange integers 1- 15 in a triangle such that the upper row consists of 5 integers, all other rows represent each the absolute values of the differences between the adjacent members of the row above so that the 5th row contains one number only.

```4   7  15  10   2
3  12   5   8
9   7   * oops!  Can't use 3 again.```
Just wanted to explain the build-up..
Better luck to the solvers!

I found smaller triangles using 1-3, 1-6 and 1-10 by hand

```1 3
2```
```1 6 4
5 2
3```
```8 3 10 9
5 7 1
2 6
4 ```

I was not able to find the 1-15 by hand. Your first row is 6 14 15 3 13.   There may be some patterns arising.

Would you find altering your program and trying to find higher order triangles?
