Binomial Theorem

Key Concepts

1. A binomial expression is an algebraic expression having two terms. For example, (a + b). (a - b) etc.
2. The expansion of a binomial for any positive integral exponent W is given by the binomial theorem. The binomial theorem says that (x+ y)n = nC1xn-1y+ nC2xn-2y2+ --- + nCrxn-ryr + ----- + nCn-1xyn-1 + nCnyn In summation notation
• In the binomial expansion of (x + y)n the number of terms is (n + 1) i.e. one more than the exponent.
• The exponent of 'I goes on decreasing by unity and that of y increases by unity. Exponent of 'x is W in the first term, (n - 1) in the second term. and so on ending with zero in the last term.
• The sum of the indices of 'x and 'y' is always equal to the index of the expression.
3. The coefficients nCr. the number of combinations of n objects taken rata time. Occurring in the binomial theorem, are known as binomial coefficients.
4. Binomial coefficients when arranged in the form given below form the Pascal's Triangle
5. The array of numbers arranged in the from of a triangle with 1 at the vertes and running down two slanting sides is known as the Pascal’s triangle, after the name of the French mathematician Blaise Pascal. It is also known as Menu Prastara by Pinglak.
6. Pascal's triangle is a special triangle of numbers. It has an infinite number of rows. Pascal's triangle is a storehouse of patterns.
7. In order to construct the elements of the following rows, add the number directly above and to the left with the number directly above and to the right to find the new value. If either the number to the right or left is not present, substitute a zero in its place.
8. Using the binomial theorem for non -negative index
(x-y)n = [x +(-y)]n
(x-y)n= nCoXn - nC1Xn-1y + nC2Xn-2y2  - nC3Xn-3y3 + ….+ (-1)n  nCnyn
In summation notation
9. The binomial theorem can be used to expand a trinomial by applying the binomial expansion twice.
10. General term in the expansion of
11. General term in the expansion of
12. If n is odd, then {(x + y)n + (x - y)"} and {(x + y)n - (x - y)n} both have the same number of terms equal to   whereas if n is even, then {(x + y)n + (x - y)n} has   terms and  has   terms.
13. If n is even , there is only one middle term in the expansion of (x + y)n and will be the  term
14. If n is odd, there are two middle terms in the expansion of
