# Sum of all the numbers present at given level in Pascal’s triangle

Given a level L. The task is to find the sum of all the integers present at the given level in Pascal’s triangle .

A Pascal triangle with 6 levels is as shown below:

1

1 1

1 2 1

1 3 3 1

1 4 6 4 1

1 5 10 10 5 1

**Examples:**

Input:L = 3

Output:4

1 + 2 + 1 = 4

Input:L = 2

Output:2

**Approach:** If we observe carefully the series of the sum of levels will go on like * 1, 2, 4, 8, 16….*, which is a GP series with a = 1 and r = 2.

Therefore, sum of Lth level is L’th term in the above series.

Lth term = 2^{L-1}

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

`// C++ implementation of the above approach ` ` ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// Function to find sum of numbers at ` `// Lth level in Pascals Triangle ` `int` `sum(` `int` `h) ` `{ ` ` ` `return` `pow` `(2, h - 1); ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver Code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `int` `L = 3; ` ` ` ` ` `cout << sum(L); ` ` ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |
