## Intermediate 2nd Year Maths 2A Binomial Theorem Important Questions

Question 1.

Find the number of terms in the expression of (2x + 3y + z)^{7} [Mar. 14, 13, 07]

Solution:

Number of terms in (a + b + c)^{n} are \(\frac{(n+1)(n+2)}{2}\), where n is a postive integer. Hence number of terms in (2x + 3y + z)^{7} are \(\frac{(7+1)(7+2)}{2}=\frac{8 \times 9}{2}\) = 36

Question 2.

Prove that C_{0} + 2 . C_{1} + 4 . C_{2} + 8 . C_{3} + …………… + 2^{n} . C_{n} = 3^{n} [A.P. Mar. 15; May 07]

Solution:

L.H.S. = C_{0} + 2 . C_{1} + 4 . C_{2} + 8 . C_{3} + …………… + 2^{n} . C_{n}

= _{0} + C_{1}(2) + C_{2} (2)^{2} + C_{3} (2^{3}) + …………… + C_{n} . 2^{n}

= (1 + 2)^{n} = 3^{n}

Note: (1 + x)^{n} = C_{0} + C_{1} . x + C_{2} . x^{2} + …………… + C_{n} . x^{n}

Question 3.

If ^{22}C_{r} is the largest binomial coefficient in the expansion of (1 + x)^{22}, find the value of ^{13}C_{r}. [A.P. Mar. 15; May 07]

Solution:

Here n = 22 is an even integer. There is only one largest binomial coefficient and it is

^{n}C_{(n/2)} = ^{22}C_{11} = ^{22}C_{r} ⇒ r = 11

∴ ^{13}C_{r} = ^{13}C_{11} = ^{13}C_{2} = \(\frac{13 \times 12}{1 \times 2}\) = 78

Question 4.

Write down and simplify 6^{th} term in (\(\frac{2x}{3}\) + \(\frac{3y}{2}\))^{9} [May 13]

Solution:

6^{th} term in (\(\frac{2x}{3}\) + \(\frac{3y}{2}\))^{9}

The general term in (\(\frac{2x}{3}\) + \(\frac{3y}{2}\))^{9} is

T_{r+1} = ^{9}C_{r} (\(\frac{2x}{3}\))^{9-r} (\(\frac{3y}{2}\))^{r}

Put r = 5

T_{6} = ^{9}C_{5} (\(\frac{2x}{3}\))^{4} (\(\frac{3y}{2}\))^{5}

= ^{9}C_{5} (\(\frac{2}{3}\))^{4} (\(\frac{3}{2}\))^{5} x^{4} y^{5}

= \(\frac{9 \times 8 \times 7 \times 6}{1 \times 2 \times 3 \times 4} \frac{\left(2^{4}\right)}{3^{4}} \cdot \frac{3^{5}}{2^{5}} \cdot x^{4} y^{5}\)

= 189 x^{4}y^{5}

Question 5.

If the coefficients of (2r + 4)^{th} term and (3r + 4)^{th} term in the expansion of (1 + x)^{21} are equal, find r. [T.S. Mar.15]

Solution:

T_{2r+4} in (1 + x)^{21} is

= ^{21}C_{2r+3} (x)^{2r+3} ………………… (1)

T_{3r+4} in (1 + x)^{21} is

= ^{21}C_{3r+3} . (x)^{3r+3} ……………….. (2)

⇒ Coefficients are equal

⇒ ^{21}C_{2r+3} = ^{21}C_{3r+3}

⇒ 21 = (2r + 3) + (3r + 3)

(or)

2r + 3 = 3r + 3

⇒ 5r = 15

⇒ r = 3 (or) r = 0 .

Hence r = 0, 3.

Question 6.

Fin the sum of the infinite series 1 + \(\frac{1}{3}\) + \(\frac{1.3}{3.6}\) + \(\frac{1.3.5}{3.6.9}\) + …………… [T.S. Mar. 15]

Solution:

The series can be written as

S = 1 + \(\frac{1}{1}\). \(\frac{1}{3}\) + \(\frac{1.3}{3.6}\) (\(\frac{1}{3}\))^{2} + \(\frac{1.3.5}{1.2.3}\) (\(\frac{1}{3}\))^{3} + ……………..

The series of the right is of the form

1 + \(\frac{p}{1}\) (\(\frac{x}{q}\)) + \(\frac{p(p+q)}{1.2}\) (\(\frac{x}{q}\))^{2} + \(\frac{p(p+q)(p+2 q)}{1.2 .3}\) (\(\frac{x}{q}\))^{3} + ……………

Here p = 1, q = 2, \(\frac{x}{q}\) = \(\frac{1}{3}\) ⇒ x = \(\frac{2}{3}\)

The sum of the given series

S = (1 – x)^{-p/q}

= (1 – \(\frac{2}{3}\))^{-1/2} = (\(\frac{1}{3}\))^{-1/2} = \(\sqrt{3}\)

Question 7.

Find the set E of the value of x for which the binomial expansions for the (a + bx)^{r} are valid. [Mar. 08]

Solution:

(4 + 9x)^{-2/3} = 4^{-2/3} [1 + \(\frac{9x}{4}\)]^{-2/3}

The binomial expansion of (4 + 9x)^{-2/3} is valid

When |\(\frac{9x}{4}\)| < 1

⇒ |x| < \(\frac{4}{9}\)

⇒ x ∈ (\(\frac{-4}{9}\), \(\frac{4}{9}\))

i.e., E = (\(\frac{-4}{9}\), \(\frac{4}{9}\))

Question 8.

If the 2^{nd}, 3^{rd} and 4^{th} terms in the expansion of (a + x)^{n} are respectively 240, 720,

1080, find a, x, n. [T.S. Mar. 16]

Solution:

T_{2} = 240 ⇒ ^{n}C_{1} a^{n-1} x = 240 …………….. (1)

T_{3} = 720 ⇒ ^{n}C_{2} a^{n-2} x^{2} = 720 …………… (2)

T_{4} = 1080 ⇒ ^{n}C_{3} a^{n-3} x^{3} = 1080 …………… (3)

\(\frac{(2)}{(1)} \Rightarrow \frac{{ }^{n} C_{2} a^{n-2} x^{2}}{{ }^{n} C_{1} a^{n-1} x}=\begin{aligned}

&720 \\

&240

\end{aligned}\)

⇒ \(\frac{n-1}{2} \frac{x}{a}\) = 3 ⇒ (n – 1)x = 6a …………………. (4)

\(\frac{(3)}{(2)} \Rightarrow \frac{{ }^{n} C_{3} a^{n-3} x^{3}}{{ }^{n} C_{2} a^{n-2} x^{2}}=\frac{1080}{720}\)

⇒ \(\frac{n-2}{3} \frac{x}{a}=\frac{3}{2}\)

⇒ 2(n – 2)x = 9a …………………… (5)

\(\frac{(4)}{(5)} \Rightarrow \frac{(n-1) x}{2(n-2) x}=\frac{6 a}{9 a} \Rightarrow \frac{n-1}{2 n-4}=\frac{2}{3}\)

⇒ 3n – 3 = 4n – 8

⇒ n = 5

From (4), (5 – 1) x = 6a ⇒ 4x = 6a

⇒ x = \(\frac{3}{2}\) a

Substitute x = \(\frac{3}{2}\) a, n = 5 in (1)

^{5}C_{1} . a^{4} . \(\frac{3}{2}\) a = 240

5 × \(\frac{3}{2}\) a^{5} = 240

a^{5} = \(\frac{480}{15}\) = 32 = 2^{5}

∴ a = 2, x = \(\frac{3}{2}\) a = \(\frac{3}{2}\) (2) = 3

∴ a = 2, x = 3, n = 5.

Question 9.

If the coefficients of r^{th}, (r + 1)^{th}, and (r + 2)^{nd}, terms in the expansion of (1 + x)^{n}, are in A.P. then show that n^{2} – (4r + 1)n + 4r^{2} – 2 = 0. [T.S. Mar. 15, 08]

Solution:

Coefficient of T_{r} = ^{n}C_{r-1}

Coefficient of T_{r+1} = ^{n}C_{r}

Coefficient of T_{r+2} = ^{n}C_{r+1}

Given ^{n}C_{r-1}, ^{n}C_{r}, ^{n}C_{r+1} are in A.P.

⇒ 2 . ^{n}C_{r} = ^{n}C_{r-1} + ^{n}C_{r+1}

⇒ (2n – 3r + 2) (r + 1) = (n – r) (n – r + 1)

⇒ 2nr + 2n – 3r^{2} – 3r + 2r + 2 = n^{2} – 2nr + r^{2} + n – r

⇒ n^{2} – 4nr + 4r^{2} – n – 2 = 0

∴ n^{2} – (4r + 1)n + 4r^{2} – 2 = 0

Question 10.

If n is a postive integer, prove that \(\sum_{r=1}^{n} r^{3}\left(\frac{{ }^{n} C_{r}}{{ }^{n} C_{r-1}}\right)^{2}=\frac{(n)(n+1)^{2}(n+2)}{12}\) [Mar. 13]

Solution:

= (n + 1)^{2} Σ r – 2(n + 1) Σ r^{2} + Σ r^{3}

= (n + 1)^{2} \(\frac{(n)(n+1)}{2}\)

Question 11.

Find the set of values of x for which the binomial expansions of the following are valid.

(i) (2 + 3x)^{-2/3}

(ii) (5 + x)^{3/2}

(iii) (7 + 3x)^{-5}

(iv) (4 – \(\frac{x}{3}\))^{-1/2} [A.P. Mar. 17; Mar. 16; Mar. 11]

Solution:

(i) (2 + 3x)^{-2/3} = [2(1 + \(\frac{3}{2}\)x)]^{-2/3}

= 2^{-2/3} (1 + \(\frac{3}{2}\)x)^{-2/3}

∴ The binomial expansion of (2 + 3x)^{-2/3} is valid when |\(\frac{3}{2}\)x| < 1

(i.e.,) |x| < \(\frac{2}{3}\)

(i.e.,) x ∈ (-\(\frac{2}{3}\), \(\frac{2}{3}\))

ii) (5 + x)^{3/2} = [5 (1 + \(\frac{x}{5}\))]^{3/2} [T.S. Mar. 17]

= 5^{3/2} (1 + \(\frac{x}{5}\))]^{3/2}

∴ The binomial expansion of (5 + x)^{3/2} is valid when \(\frac{x}{5}\) < 1

(i.e.,) |x| < 5

(i.e.,) x ∈ (-5, 5)

iii) (7 + 3x)^{-5} = [7 (1 + \(\frac{3}{7}\) x)]^{-5}

= 7^{-5} (1 + \(\frac{3}{7}\) x)]^{-5}

(7 + 3x)^{-5} is valid when \(\frac{3x}{7}\) < 1

⇒ |x| < \(\frac{7}{3}\) ⇒ x ∈ (\(\frac{-7}{3}\), \(\frac{7}{3}\))

iv) (4 – \(\frac{x}{3}\))^{-1/2} = [4(1 – \(\frac{x}{3}\))]^{-1/2}

(4 – \(\frac{x}{3}\))^{-1/2} is valid when \(\frac{-x}{12}\) < 1

⇒ |x| < 12

⇒ x ∈ (-12, 12)

Solution:

⇒ 3x + 4 = 3\(\sqrt{3}\)

Squaring on both sides

(3x + 4)^{2} = (3\(\sqrt{3}\))^{2}

⇒ 9x^{2} + 24x + 16 = 27

⇒ 9x^{2} + 24x = 11

Question 14.

= ^{8}C_{5} . 2^{3}. 5^{5} a^{3} b^{5}

Find the middle term of the following expansions

(i) (3a – 5b)^{6}

Solution:

i) Here n = 6 (even)

∴ \(\frac{n}{2}\) + 1 = \(\frac{6}{2}\) + 1 = 4^{th} term is the middle term

∴ T_{4} = T_{3 + 1}

= ^{6}C_{3} (3a)^{6 – 3} (-5b)^{3},

= –^{6}C_{3}. 3^{3}. 5^{3}. a^{3} b^{3}

ii) Here n = 7 (odd)

\(\frac{\mathrm{n}+1}{2}\) = \(\frac{7+1}{2}\) = 4, \(\frac{\mathrm{n}+3}{2}\) = \(\frac{7+3}{2}\) = 5

∴ 4^{th}, 5^{th} terms are middle terms.

∴ T_{4} = T_{3 + 1} = ^{7}C_{3} (2x)^{7 – 3} (3y)^{3} = ^{7}C_{3} 2^{4} 3^{3}.x^{4}.y^{3}

T_{5} = T_{4 + 1} = ^{7}C_{4}(2x)^{7-4}(3y)^{4} = ^{7}C_{4}. 2^{3}.3^{4}. x^{3}. y^{4}
