Binomial Theorem is a way of expanding a given equation and simplifying it. We break the given equation in many different fragments based on the power. The useful application for Binomial Theorem is that when the equation's power increases, the calculation work becomes tedious. It is not easy to calculate the value of (x + y4)13 easily as that would take a long time. But by using binomial theorem, we can easily calculate its value.
What is Binomial Theorem?
Whenever an equation has been raised to high powers, it is difficult to simplify it and get the answers. Hence we simplify the given equation by breaking it into parts of each power, starting from 0. In the binomial theorem, we have two variables that are being expanded. If we use more than two variables in expansion, then the expansion is called multinomial expansion that follows a different technique.
Parts of Binomial Theorem
Any binomial expansion has different terms as the power of a variable and consonant keeps increasing from 0. Hence binomial expansion sees the use of permutation and combination concepts. Some terminologies used in the binomial expansion are general term, middle term, independent term, numerically greatest term, and the ratio of consecutive terms.
