Introduction

Pascal's Triangle and the Binomial Theorem gives us a way of expressing the expansion as

a sum of ordered terms.

Pascal's Triangle

Coefficients are the constants(1,2,3,4,5,6 etc.) that multiply each variable, or group of

variables.

(a+b)0= 1

(a+b)1= a + b

(a+b)2= a2 + 2ab + b2

The Binomial Theorem builds on Pascal's Triangle in practical terms, since writing out

triangles of numbers has its limits.

Algebra Pure Maths topic notes

This is a way of finding all the terms of the series, the coefficients and the powers of the

variables.

The coefficients, represented by nCr , are calculated using probability theory. For a deeper

understanding you may wish to look at where nCr comes from; but for now you must

accept that:

and 'r' is the number order of the term minus one

Example #1

Example #2

It is suggested that the reader try making similar questions, working through the

calculations and checking the answer here (max. value of n=8)

Algebra Pure Maths topic notes

This is for (1+x)n , where n can take any value positive or negative, and x is a fraction ( -

1<x<1 ).
