In the bionomial expansion (1+x)^p , p can be integer or fraction. The coefficients are written as p(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

C

j . For this to hold p>= j. (j= integer). What happens if p=1/2,-1/2 or any other fraction? How can one use the same combination coefficient formula?

tks for any hlp.
