Blaise Pascal

Pascal was a child genius, who was educated by his father. Although he was also a scientist, his greatest contributions were made in mathematics. With the use of his applied science skills, he invented the first mechanical calculator.Pascal helped to create a major area of research, in what is commonly known as probability. Pascal worked together with another mathematician; Fermat; they were prompted by a friend interested in GAMBLING problems.The specific problem was that of two players who want to finish a game early and, given the current circumstances of the game, want to divide the stakes fairly, based on the chance each has of winning the game from that point.
