### Re: Happy Birthday, Alokananda!

Then let me wish her a Happy Birthday, that might help.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

That is a good idea.

Oops!

how do I compute the last three digits of 2014C1+2014C3+2014C5+...+2014C2013 by hand?

Consider the question: In how many ways can you select things from a collection of 2014 things?

This is equivalent to 2014C1 + 2014C2 + 2014C3 + .. 2014C2014

For each doll you have, 2 choices. To select it or not, so there are 2^2014 ways.

Now, for only odd number of dolls:

Half of those cases we selected odd number of dolls

This is equivalent to asking in how many cases you are choosing the odd terms.

### Re: Happy Birthday, Alokananda!

Looks like Alokananda is a special person here that she has her own annual birthday thread. Who is she? Is she the admin here? I have no clue.

Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away. May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.

There are many birthdays celebrated here, Agnishom, anonimnystefy, ganesh, mine and several others. Anyone who mentions their birthday will have it celebrated.
