(1+x)^n=1+nx/1!+(n(n-1) x^2)/2!+⋯+ what are the last few terms of this ? I looked and tried but don't seem to get any text book answer for this.

hi rohan03!

(try using the X2 and X2 buttons just above the Reply box )

the binomial coefficients are symmetric (nCr = nCn-r),
so it ends + n(n-1) xn-2/2! + nxn-1/1! + xn

(1+n)n ≥ 5/2nn- 1/2n n-1
