Relating Pascal's Triangle and Compound Interest

I hope that this is the right forum to post this question.
In exploring the relationship between compound interest and Pascal's Triangle, I've become stuck at trying to explain why
I would greatly appreciate it if someone could explain the intermediary steps taken to come to this conclusion.

It's not true! You must be missing something.

Apparently what I had was completely wrong, so could somebody tell me if the equations below are correct? At least one of them should be incorrect.
Thanks

The first one is right, the second and third ones are wrong. They equal $n!$.
