## Main Question or Discussion Point

This is from a worked example involving using Stirlings approximations.

I have the log equation, where c<<1:

S=K(Nln(N)-cNln(cN)-N(1-c)ln(1-c))

In the next line of the example, this is simplified to

S=-kNcln(c)

I've tried a few ways of getting to this, but have had no success. I've tried making the last term 0, but still don't get the right answer.

Any help would be great :) Thanks
