In this lecture you will learn about the Binomial Theorem. First, you will cover the General Form of Pascal's Triangles as well as its Properties. Then, you will cover the Binomial Theorem and how to Find a Specific Term.
In the kth term of
(a + b)n , the exponent of b is k 1 and the exponent
of is n (k 1).
In the kth term,
the coefficient has k 1 factors in the numerator and the
You can always
find the coefficients of the expansion or of a particular term by
writing out Pascals triangle and using row n.
of the expansion are symmetrical around the middle term. So once
you have found the first half of the coefficients, you already have
the coefficients for the rest of the terms. They are the same ones
you have found but listed in reverse order.
