#### How to find Middle Term?

The Middle Term: In the expansion of (a + b)^n, the total number of terms are (n + 1). The middle term in the expansion of (a + b)^n depend on n.

1. When n is even: Let n = 2m, where m is positive integer. The total number of terms will be 2m + 1. Hence, the middle term of the expansion (a + b)^n will be 1/2[(2m + 1) + 1], i. e. when n is even then (m + 1)th term or (n/2 + 1)th will be the middle term.

2. When n is odd: Let n = 2m + 1, where m is a positive integer. In the expansion of (a + b)^n the total number of terms will be (m + 2). The middle term in the expansion of (a + b)^n will be (m + 1)th and (m + 2)th term or (n + 1)/2th and ((n + 3)/2th term.

##### Important Terms on Binomial Theorem

1. Binomial Expression: Any expression containing two terms combined by + or – is called Binomial expression. For example: x + 3, 2x + y, x – 4y, 4 – 100x, y – 4, etc.

2. In the expansion of (a + b)^n, the coefficient of first term = coefficient of last term, coefficient of second term = coefficient of second term from last. Thus we get that in the expansion of (a + b)^n, the terms from first term and from the last term at equal distance have the same coefficients.

3. The General Term: The term (r + 1) is called the general term of the expansion (a + b)^n because we can get different terms from this term by giving different values to r. This general term is denoted by Tr+1.

### Important Questions on 11th Maths Chapter 8

##### Using Binomial theorem,indicate which is larger (1.1)¹⁰⁰⁰⁰ or 1000.

By splitting 1.1 and then applying Binomial Theorem, the first few terms of (1.1)10000 can be obtained as

(1.1)^10000

= (1 + 0.1)^10000 = C(10000, 0) + C(10000, 1) (10000)^1 (0.1)^1 + Other positive terms.

= 1 + 10000×0.1 + Other positive terms.

= 1001 + Other positive terms. > 1000

Hence,(1.1)^10000 > 1000.

##### Find an approximation of (0.99)^5 using the first three terms of its expansion.

99 can be written as the sum or difference of two numbers whose powers are easier to calculate and then, Binomial Theorem can be applied.

It can be written that, 0.99 = 1 – 0.01

Therefore,(0.99)^5

= (1-0.01)^5

= C(5, 0) (-0.01)^0 + C(5, 1) (-0.01)^1 + C(5, 2) (-0.01)^2 + ⋯

= 1 – 5(0.01) + 10(0.0001) + ⋯ ≈ 1 – 0.05 + 0.001 = 0.951

##### Find the expansion of (3x^2 – 2ax + 3a^2 )^3 using binomial theorem.

Here,(3x^2-2ax+3a^2 )^3=[(3x^2-2ax)-3a^2 ]^3

Using Binomial theorem, the expression [(3x^2-2ax)-3a^2 ]^3 can be expressed as

C(3, 0) (3x^2-2ax)^3 + C(3, 1) (3x^2-2ax)^2 (3a^2) + C(3, 2)(3x^2-2ax)^1 (3a^2)^2 + C(3, 3)(3a^2)^3

= (3x^2-2ax)^3+3(9x^4+4a^2 x^2-12ax^3)(3a^2) + 3(3x^2-2ax)(9a^4) + (27a^6)^

= (3x^2-2ax)^3+(81a^2 x^4+36a^4 x^2-108a^3 x^3)+(81a^4 x^2-54a^5 x)+〖27a^6〗^ …(1)

Again applying Binomial theorem, we have (3x^2-2ax)^3 = C(3, 0)(3x^2 )^3 + C(3, 1)(3x^2 )^2 (-2ax)^1 + C(3, 2)(3x^2)(-2ax)^2 + C(3, 3)(-2ax)^3

= 27x^6-3×18ax^5+3×12a^2 x^4-8a^3 x^3

= 27x^6-54ax^5+36a^2 x^4-8a^3 x^3

Now putting the value of (3x^2-2ax)^3 in (1),we have (3x^2-2ax+3a^2 )^3

= [27x^6-54ax^5+36a^2 x^4-8a^3 x^3 ]+(81a^2 x^4+36a^4 x^2-108a^3 x^3 )+(81a^4 x^2-54a^5 x)+〖27a^6〗

= 27x^6-54ax^5+117a^2 x^4-116a^3 x^3+117a^4 x^2-54a^5 x+27a^6
