The binomial theorem is a simplified way of finding the expansion of a binomial to a certain power. We can of course find the expanded form of any binomial to a certain power by writing it and doing each step, but this process can be very time consuming when you get into let’s say a binomial to the 10th power. Example:

(x+y)^0=1 of course because anything to the power if 0 equal 1 (x+y)^1= x+y anything to a power of 1 is just itself.
(x+y)^2= (x+y)(x+y) NOT x^2+y^2.
So expand (x+y)(x+y)=x^2+xy+yx+y^2 or x^2+2xy+y^2.
(x+y)^3=(x+y)(x+y)(x+y) now expanding it is getting quite long. Of course we could do this using the distribution property, but there must be an easier way of expanding binomials with out doing all the steps that is takes to expand something like (x+y)^10.

As surprising as it might be, there is an easier way of find what a binomial equals to a larger power. Using combinations we can find the coefficients of each term. Lets look at an example. The (x+y)^3 was the one I didn’t finish. Let’s look at it now. Using the equation in combination, we can insert the power that we are using and for each term to find the coefficient of each term. Ex:

This process can be even easier. Blaise Pascal, a famous French mathematical among other things put together a triangle made up of numbers where each number represents the coefficient of each term (when expanded) in a binomial to a certain power. He named the triangle “triangle du arithmétique” or in English, “The Arithmetical Triangle”. Now the triangle is called “Pascal’s triangle named after the creator, Blaise Pascal. We can find this triangle by using combinations. Ex:

Moving back to the binomial theorem, you can use any binomial and find what it equals using Pascal’s triangle or combinations. We can us any two random numbers, a number and a variable, variables with coefficients, subtraction instead of adding etc. Lets look at some examples.

The binomialtheorem describes the algebraic expansion of powers of a binomial.

There are 3 methods to expand binomial expression
Method 1 - Algebra method
Expansion two or more expression.
Example: The expansion depend on power value (n)
n = 0, (a + x)0 = 1
n = 1, (a + x)1 = a + x
n = 2, (a + x)2 = (a + x) (a + x) = a2 + 2ax + x2
n = 3, (a + x)3 = (a + x) (a + x) (a + x) = a3 + 3a2x + 3ax2 + x3
n = 4, (a + x)4 = (a + x)(a + x)(a + x)(a + x) = a4 +4a3x +6a2x2 +4ax3+ x4

Fermat’s Little Theorem From the Multinomial Theorem
Thomas J. Osler (osler@rowan.edu) Rowan University, Glassboro, NJ 08028 Fermat’s Little Theorem [1] states that n p −1 − 1 is divisible by p whenever p is prime and n is an integer not divisible by p. This theorem is used in many of the simpler tests for primality. The so-called multinomial theorem (described in [2]) gives the expansion of a multinomial to an integer power p > 0, (a1 + a2 + ⋅⋅⋅ + an ) p = p k1 k2 kn a1 a2 ⋅⋅⋅ an . k1 , k2 , ⋅⋅⋅, kn k1 + k2 +⋅⋅⋅+ kn = p
∑
(1)
Here the multinomial coefficient is calculated by p p! . = k1 , k2 , ⋅⋅⋅, kn k1 !k2 !⋅⋅⋅ kn ! (2)
This is a generalization of the familiar binomialtheorem to the case where the sum of n terms ( a1 + a2 + + an ) is raised to the power p. In (1), the sum is taken over all , kn such that k1 + k2 + + kn = p .
nonnegative integers k1 , k2 ,
In this capsule, we show that Fermat’s Little Theorem can be derived easily from the multinomial theorem. The following steps provide the derivation. 1. All the multinomial coefficients (2) are positive integers. This is clear from the way in which they arise by repeated multiplication by (a1 + a2 + ⋅⋅⋅ + an ) in (1). 2. There are n values of the multinomial coefficient that equal 1. These occur when all but one of the indices kr = 0 , so...

...Four-D? That is, what is the probability of Four-D rejecting a shipment of drives from DataStor?
The probability of Four-D rejecting a shipment of drives from DataStor, if there process is “in control”, is 3.8%.
Four-D conducts the PDQ test on 10 random samples of each shipment.. We used this as the sample size in the Binomial Probability Distribution feature of PhStat.
The probability of the event, that a drive would fall below Four-D’s quality standard of 6.2, was gained from Question 1.
Outcomes 1 – 10 were queried because there are 10 possible scenarios of Four-D rejecting the sample. The cumulative probability of Four-D rejecting a shipment from DataStor’s “in control” process is 3.8%. See the table below for the calculation.
The binomial probability feature was used because this is a decision with two conditions: acceptable or unacceptable.

...#1 True or false: Even if the sample size is more than 1000, we cannot always use the normal approximation to binomial.
Solution:
If a sample is n>30, we can say that sample size is sufficiently large to assume normal approximation to binomial curve.
Hence the statement is false.

She has found from her years of experience that after demonstration, the probability of purchase (long run average) is 0.30. To perform satisfactory on the job, the salesperson needs at least four orders this week. If she performs 15 demonstrations this week, what is the probability of her being satisfactory?

...Pythagorean Theorem was one of the earliest theorems known to ancient civilizations. This famous theorem is named for the Greek mathematician and philosopher, Pythagoras. Pythagoras founded the Pythagorean School of Mathematics in Cortona, a Greek seaport in Southern Italy. He is credited with many contributions to mathematics although some of them may have actually been the work of his students.
The Pythagorean Theorem is Pythagoras' most famous mathematical contribution. According to legend, Pythagoras was so happy when he discovered the theorem that he offered a sacrifice of oxen. The later discovery that the square root of 2 is irrational and therefore, cannot be expressed as a ratio of two integers, greatly troubled Pythagoras and his followers. They were devout in their belief that any two lengths were integral multiples of some unit length. Many attempts were made to suppress the knowledge that the square root of 2 is irrational. It is even said that the man who divulged the secret was drowned at sea.
The Pythagorean Theorem is a statement about triangles containing a right angle. The Pythagorean Theorem states that:
"The area of the square built upon the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares upon the remaining sides."

...Historical Account:
Pythagoras, the namesake and supposed discoverer of the Pythagorean Theorem, was born on the Greek island of Samos in the early in the late 6th century. Not much is known about his early years of life, however, we do know that Pythagoras traveled through Egypt in the attempt to learn more about mathematics.
Besides his famous theorem, Pythagoras gained fame for founding a group, the Brotherhood of Pythagoreans, which was dedicated solely to study of mathematics and worship of numbers. Pythagoras passed on his belied that numbers are in fact the true "rulers of the universe".
While studying in Egypt, it is believed that Pythagoras studied with people known as the "rope-stretchers", the same people who engineered the pyramids. By using a special form of a rope tied in a circle with 12 evenly spaced knots, they discovered that if the rope was pegged to the ground in the dimensions of 3-4-5, the rope would create a right triangle. The rope stretchers used this principle to help accurately lay the foundations of for their buildings.
It was this fascination with the rope stretchers 3-4-5 triangle that ultimately led to the discovery of the Pythagorean theorem. While experimenting with this concept by drawing in the sand, Pythagoras found that if a square is drawn from each side of the 3-4-5 triangle, the area of the two smaller squares could be added together and equal the area of the large square....
