Binomial Theorem

Made a page about the Binomial Theorem

Critiques welcome.

Re: Binomial Theorem

Hi MathsisFun;

Well done, would like to see you mention Sir Isaac Newton.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Re: Binomial Theorem

Ah yes,the general version. What would you suggest writing? It may need a whole page on its own.

Re: Binomial Theorem

Hi MathsisFun;

Just a brief paragraph mentioning that Newton is credited with the discovery should do it.

Re: Binomial Theorem

That is a cool trick.

It also applies to the C=6 term: C = 1*6/(0+1) = 6

So there must be a general rule for generating any row of Pascal's Triangle ...

Re: Binomial Theorem

I have reworked the page, including more examples at the end.

Would appreciate your thoughts, guys: Binomial Theorem

Hi MathsisFun;

Nice derivation of the Taylor series for e at the bottom. Thanks for the page.
