1. ## triangle of numbers

Insert the numbers from 1 to 15 in the boxes below so that the subtraction of two numbers beside each other (their absolute value) results their above value. For example:
| K – L | = G | G-H | =D
| L-M | = H | H-I | =E
And so on.
The numbers can't be repeated and should not be zero.

A triangular number is a figurate number: a number that can be represented by a ... The triangular numbers are found in the third diagonal of Pascal's triangle.

Now extend the triangle by adding a sixth row.
The problem can't be solved by using the numbers 1 - 21, but if you are given 1 - 22 and omit one (one of the numbers, not necessarily the number 1) it can be done.
