Binomial SeriesIn this chapter you should be able to use the expansion of 
n
 x
)1(
+
, wheren is a rational number and | x | < 1 (finding a general term is notincluded, but adapting the standard series to expand e.g
121
)2(
x
isincluded).If n is a positive integer, the binomial expansion
nx)(1
+
= 1 + nx +
n
x.......3x1.2.32)1)(nn(n2x1.21)n(n
+++
is a finite seriesconsisting of n + 1 terms.Consider the infinite geometric series,
.....
...4x3x2xx1
++
which has thefinite sum
x11
+
, provided |x| < 1. Thus, we write
1
)1(

x
= 1 -

.......
32
+
x x
provided |x| <1 which can also be stated as the expansionof 
1
)1(
+
x
. This result can be obtained by putting n = -1 in thefollowing binomial expansion for any
negative integer
.
n
 x)(1

....... x1.2.32)1)(nn(n x1.21)n(nnx1

provided |x| <1, which is calledthe binomial series.Furthermore, the binomial expansion is also valid if n is a
fraction
or a
rational number
, i.e
q pn
=
. We have
q p
 x)(1

Expand the following in ascending powers of x up to and including theterm
