KEY CONCEPTS
BINOMIAL EXPONENTIAL & LOGARITHMIC SERIES
1. BINOMIAL THEOREM :
The formula by which any positive integral power of a binomial expression can be expanded in
the form of a series is known as BINOMIAL THEOREM .
If x , y ∈ R and n ∈ N, then ; n
(x + y) = C0 x + C1 x y + C2 x y + ..... + Cr x y + ..... + Cny =  nCr xn – r yr.
n n n n n−1 n n−2 2 n n−r r n n

## This theorem can be proved by Induction . r 0

OBSERVATIONS :
(i) The number of terms in the expansion is (n + 1) i.e. one or more than the index .
(ii) The sum of the indices of x & y in each term is n .
(iii) The binomial coefficients of the terms nC0 , nC1 .... equidistant from the beginning and the end are equal.
2. IMPORTANT TERMS IN THE BINOMIAL EXPANSION ARE:
(i) General term (ii) Middle term
(iii) Term independent of x & (iv) Numerically greatest term
(i) The general term or the (r + 1)th term in the expansion of (x + y)n is given by : Tr+1 = nCr xn−r . yr
(ii) The middle term(s) is the expansion of (x + y)n is (are) :
(a) If n is even , there is only one middle term which is given by ;
T(n+2)/2 = nCn/2 . xn/2 . yn/2
(b) If n is odd , there are two middle terms which are :
T(n+1)/2 & T[(n+1)/2]+1
(iii) Term independent of x contains no x ; Hence find the value of r for which the exponent of x is zero.
(iv) To find the Numerically greatest term is the expansion of (1 + x)n , n ∈ N find
n
Tr 1 Cr x r n  r 1
 n r 1
 x . Put the absolute value of x & find the value of r Consistent with the
Tr C r 1x r
Tr 1
inequality > 1.
Tr
Note that the Numerically greatest term in the expansion of (1 − x)n , x > 0 , n ∈ N is the same
as the greatest term in (1 + x)n .
3. If  A B  n
= I + f, where I & n are positive integers, n being odd and 0 < f < 1, then
(I + f) . f = Kn where A − B2 = K > 0 & A − B < 1.
If n is an even integer, then (I + f) (1 − f) = Kn.
4. BINOMIAL COEFFICIENTS :
(i) C0 + C1 + C2 + ....... + Cn = 2n
(ii) C0 + C2 + C4 + ....... = C1 + C3 + C5 + ....... = 2n−1
(2 n) !
(iii) C0² + C1² + C2² + .... + Cn² = 2nCn =
n! n!
( 2n )!
(iv) C0.Cr + C1.Cr+1 + C2.Cr+2 + ... + Cn−r.Cn =
( n  r ) ( n  r )!
REMEMBER :
(i) (2n)! = 2n . n! [1. 3. 5 ...... (2n − 1)]

Binomial [2]
5. BINOMIAL THEOREM FOR NEGATIVE OR FRACTIONAL INDICES :
n ( n  1) 2 n ( n  1) ( n  2) 3
If n ∈ Q , then (1 + x)n = 1  n x  x  x ...... Provided | x | < 1.
2! 3!
Note:
(i) When the index n is a positive integer the number of terms in the expansion of
(1 + x)n is finite i.e. (n + 1) & the coefficient of successive terms are: nC0 , nC1 , nC2 , nC3 ..... nCn
(ii) When the index is other than a positive integer such as negative integer or fraction, the number of
terms in the expansion of (1 + x)n is infinite and the symbol nCr cannot be used to denote the
Coefficient of the general term .
(iii) Following expansion should be remembered (⏐x⏐ < 1).
(a) (1 + x)−1 = 1 − x + x2 − x3 + x4 − .... ∞ (b) (1 − x)−1 = 1 + x + x2 + x3 + x4 + .... ∞
(c) (1 + x)−2 = 1 − 2x + 3x2 − 4x3 + .... ∞ (d) (1 − x)−2 = 1 + 2x + 3x2 + 4x3 + ..... ∞
(iv) The expansions in ascending powers of x are only valid if x is ‘small’. If x is large i.e. | x | > 1 then
1
we may find it convinient to expand in powers of , which then will be small.
x
6. APPROXIMATIONS :
n (n  1) n ( n  1) (n  2) 3
(1 + x)n = 1 + nx + x² + x .....
1 .2 1 . 2 .3
If x < 1, the terms of the above expansion go on decreasing and if x be very small, a stage may be
reached when we may neglect the terms containing higher powers of x in the expansion. Thus, if x be
so small that its squares and higher powers may be neglected then (1 + x)n = 1 + nx, approximately.
This is an approximate value of (1 + x)n.
