If 1 comes in the (1,1) cell, then all the elements in the first row to the right and all the elements in the first column above 1 are bigger than 1, so the monomial factor will be [t.
Notice that in the grouping table, the lost of one o under n in the second line means that all the monomial factors from the first line have 1 more power of t than the ones from the second line, hence we get (1 + t) factor after we sum them up all.
