## Quiz on Binomial Theorem and Mathematical Induction

Q1. In the polynomial (x − 1) (x − 2) (x − 3) . . . . . (x − 100), what is the coefficient of x99?
a)  5050
b) – 5050
c) 4040
d) – 4040

b) – 5050

Solution:

(x − 1) (x − 2) (x − 3) . . . . . (x − 100)

Number of terms = 100

Coefficient of x99 = (x − 1) (x − 2) (x − 3) . . . . . (x − 100)

= (−1 −2 −3 −. . . . . . −100)

= − (1 + 2 + . . . . . +100)

= − [100 * 101 / 2

= – 5050

Q2.  If (1 + ax)= 1 + 8x + 24x2 +…., then the value of a and n are ________.
a) a = -2 and n = 4
b) a = 2 and n = 4
c) a = 4 and n = 6
d) a = 8 and n = 2

b) a = 2 and n = 4

Q3. If the coefficient of x7 in (ax+ [1/bx])11 is equal to the coefficient of x−7 in (ax − 1/bx2)11, then ab = __________.
a) -1
b) 1
c) 2
d) -2

b) 1

Q4. In the expansion of (x + a)n, the sum of odd terms is P and sum of even terms is Q, then the value of (P− Q2) will be _________.
a) (x3 − a2)n
b) (x2 − a2)2
c) (x2 − a2)n
d) (xn − an)2

c) (x2 − a2)n

Solution:

(x + a)n = xn + nC1xn−1 a + . . . . . = (xnC2xn−2a+ . . . . . . . + (nC1xn−1a + nC3xn−3a+ . . . . .) = P+Q

(x − a)= P − Q

As the terms are altered,

P− Q= (P + Q) (P − Q) = (x + a)(x − a)n

P− Q= (x2 − a2)n

Q5. (1 + x)− nx − 1 is divisible by (where n∈N)
a) 2x
b) x2
c) 2x3
d) All of these

b) x2

(1 + x)= 1 + nx + ([n (n − 1)] / [2!]) * x+ ([n (n − 1) (n − 2)] / [3!]) * x+ . . . . .

(1 + x)− nx − 1 = x2 [([n (n − 1)] / [2!]) + ([n (n − 1) (n − 3)] / [3!]) * x + . . . . .]

From above it is clear that (1 + x)− nx − 1 is divisible by x2.

Trick: (1 + x)− nx − 1, put n = 2 and x = 3;

Then 4− 2 * 3 − 1 = 9 is not divisible by 6, 54 but divisible by 9, which is given by option (b) i.e., x= 9.

Q6. The approximate value of (1.0002) 3000 is __________.
a) 1.8
b) 1.6
c) 1.9
d) 1.7

b) 1.6

Solution:

(1.0002) 3000 = (1 + 0.0002) 3000

= 1 + (3000) (0.0002) + ([(3000) (2999)] / [1.2]) * (0.0002)2

= 1 + (3000) (0.0002)

= 1.6

Q7. The digit in the unit place of the number (183!) + 3183 is _____.
a) 5
b) 7
c) 9
d) 11

b) 7

We know that n! terminates in 0 for n³ at 5 and 34n terminator in 1, (because 3= 81)

Therefore, 3180 = (34)45 terminates in 1.

Also 3= 27 terminates in 7

3183 = 3180 * 33 terminates in 7.

183! + 3183 terminates in 7 i.e. the digit in the unit place = 7

Q8. If the three consecutive coefficients in the expansion of (1 + x)n are 28, 56 and 70, then the value of n is ______.
a) 2
b) 4
c) 6
d) 8

d) 8

Solution:

Let the three consecutive coefficients be nCr−1 = 28, nC= 56 and nCr+1 = 70, so that

nCnCr−1 = [n − r + 1] / [r] = 56 / 28 = 2 and nCr+1 / nC= [n − r] / [r + 1] = 70 / 56 = 5 / 4

This gives n + 1 = 3r and 4n − 5 = 9r

4n − 5 / n + 1 = 3

⇒ n = 8
