Expert Answer:

Q: If the sum of the coefficients in the expansion of (a+b)n is 4096, then the greatest coefficient in the expansion is 
Solution:
The space greatest space coefficient space is colon space
to the power of straight n straight C subscript straight n over 2 end subscript space when space straight n space is space even
to the power of straight n straight C subscript fraction numerator straight n plus 1 over denominator 2 end fraction end subscript space and space to the power of straight n straight C subscript fraction numerator straight n minus 1 over denominator 2 end fraction end subscript
Sum space of space the space coefficients space of space left parenthesis straight a plus straight b right parenthesis to the power of straight n equals 2 to the power of straight n space Therefore comma space 2 to the power of straight n equals 4096 equals 2 to the power of 12
rightwards double arrow straight n equals 12 comma space which space is space even
So comma space the space greatest space coefficient space equals to the power of 12 straight C subscript 6 equals 924
