I like this book very much. Euler is a brilliant mathematician no doubt. He explains everything very well without holding back significant information with his exposition. However, I bump into an unfamiliar topic. I do believe it has something to do with advanced mathematics. I googled it, and I believe it has some relation to the theory of combinations, to which unfortunately I am ignorant of. I don't know which branch of mathematics it falls into. Regardless of the title elements of algebra, this book is certainly not just any ordinary book, for which I like very well. Although, I am worried since I can't understand it, is it important to understand it now, or should I take it just to have a different set of perspective on things? (Since he uses this to explain the powers of a binomial, which I understand, but his method is somehow, I think it has something to do with other branch of mathematics.)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
