David has 2014 dolls. He has to choose odd number of dolls from the collection. Find the last three digits of the number which represents the total number of ways in which he could do this.

The 2014 is constant. The choice is 1,3,5,...

Your second term is 2013C3, that can not be right.

Sorry, my second term is 2014C3

### Re: Happy Birthday, Alokananda!

Yes, sorry. But what does it matter if you are tired.

Theorem:

https://www.proofwiki.org/wiki/Sum_of_O … efficients

So

It is known that

http://www.exploringbinary.com/patterns … rs-of-two/

and that

so 8 x 24 = 192

The last 3 digits are 192 and you are done.

All proofs require a large amount of background knowledge. That is the price you pay for no computation!
