### Plus One - Chapter 8 - Binomial Theorem

In earlier classes, we have learnt how to find the squares and cubes of binomials like a + b and a – b. Using them, we could evaluate the numerical values of numbers like (98)2 = (100 – 2)2 , (999)3 = (1000 – 1)3 , etc. However, for higher powers like (98)5 , (101)6 , etc., the calculations become difficult by using repeated multiplication. This difficulty was overcome by a theorem known as binomial theorem. It gives an easier way to expand (a + b) n , where n is an integer or a rational number. In this Chapter, we study binomial theorem for positive integral indices only.
