## Karnataka 1st PUC Maths Question Bank Chapter 8 Binomial Theorem

Question 1.

State and prove Binomial theorem.

Answer:

Some observations in a binomial theorem:

(1) The expansion of {a + b)^{n} has (n + 1) terms

(2) The coefficients ^{n}C_{r} occurring in the binomial theorem are known as binomial coefficients.

(3) The indices of V go on decreasing and that of ‘a’ go on increasing by 1 at each stage.

i.e., for each term: index of a + index of b-n.

(4) Since ^{n}C_{r}=^{n}C_{n}__{r }we have

^{n}C_{0} =^{n}C_{n}, ^{n}C_{x} =^{n}C_{n}__{r }and so on.

Thus the coefficients of the terms equidistant from the beginning and the end in a binomial theorem are equal.

(5) General term in (a + b)^{n}: T_{r+1} – ^{n}C_{r }a^{n–}^{r}b^{r
}(6) Middle terms in (a + b)^{n}

- When ‘n’ is even, the middle term

\(=\left(\frac{n}{2}+1\right)^{t h} \text { term }\) - When ‘n’ is odd ,the middle term are

\(\frac{1}{2}(n+1)^{n} \text { term an } \frac{1}{2}(n+3)^{n} \text { term }\)

(7) Taking a = x and b = -y in the expansion, we get (x-y)^{n} =[x + (-y)]^{n}
