One of the diagrams on the title-page shows the Pascal triangle, a century before Pascal, although it was known to earlier Chinese and Arabian mathematicians; it contains the binomial coefficients as far as the number 8. Apianus also introduced in this work the first notation for multiplying and dividing fractions. There are other interesting woodcuts including a depiction of a man minting coins, finger reckoning and a group of students doing mathematical sums.
