How do you find each successive numerical term in this equation y+dy=(x+dx)5 =x5+5*x4dx+10*x3(dx)2+10*x^2(dx)3+5*x(dx)4+(dx)5 I would appreciate an explanation of the method to find the numeric coefficient in a binomial expansion
Thanking you in advanceHi Howard,
In the binomial expansion of (a + b)n each term is a constant times akbn-k where the constant is n choose k. that is
The binomial coefficient n choose k, written is given by
