Binomial Expansion Practice Worksheet :
Here we are going to see how to find expansion using binomial theorem.
Binomial expansion for (x + a)n is,
nc0xna0 + nc1xn-1a1 + nc2xn-2a2 + .........+ ncnxn-na0(
If X is a set containing n elements, then we know that nCr is the number of subsets of X having exactly r elements. So by adding nCr for r = 0, 1, 2, . . . , n we get the number of subsets of X. So by using the above identity we see that a set of n elements has 2n subsets.
