# How to solve binomial theorem with ti 84 plus calculator

Posted by Anonymous on

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
New users get to try the service completely Free afterwhich it costs \$6 per call and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
Goodluck!

SOURCE: TI-89 Titanium: I want to

Using elementary algebria in the binomial theorem, I expanded the power (x + y)^n into a sum involving terms in the form a x^b y^c. The coefficient of each term is a positive integer, and the sum of the exponents of x and y in each term is n. This is known as binomial coefficients and are none other than combinatorial numbers.

Combinatorial interpretation:

Using binomial coefficient (n over k) allowed me to choose k elements from an n-element set. This you will see in my calculations on my Ti 89. This also allowed me to use (x+y)^n to rewrite as a product. Then I was able to combine like terms to solve for the solution as shown below.
(x+y)^6= (x+y)(x+y)(x+y)(x+y)(x+y)(x+y) = x^6+6x^5y+15x^4y^2+20x^3y^3+15x^2y^4+6xy^5+y^6

This also follows Newton's generalized binomial theorem:

Now to solve using the Ti 89.

Using sigma notation, and factorials for the combinatorial numbers, here is the binomial theorem:

The summation sign is the general term. Each term in the sum will look like that as you will see on my calculator display. Tthe first term having k = 0; then k = 1, k = 2, and so on, up to k = n.
Notice that the sum of the exponents (n ? k) + k, always equals n.

The summation being preformed on the Ti 89. The actual summation was preformed earlier. I just wanted to show the symbolic value of (n) in both calculations. All I need to do is drop the summation sign to the actual calculation and, fill in the term value (k), for each binomial coefficient.

This is the zero th term. x^6, when k=0. Notice how easy the calculations will be. All I'm doing is adding 1 to the value of k.

This is the first term or, first coefficient 6*x^5*y, when k=1.
Solution so far = x^6+6*x^5*y

This is the 2nd term or, 2nd coefficient 15*x^4*y^2, when k=2.
Solution so far = x^6+6*x^5*y+15*x^4*y^2

This is the 3rd term or, 3rd coefficient 20*x^3*y^3, when k=3.
Solution so far = x^6+6*x^5*y+15*x^4*y^2+20*x^3*y^3

This is the 4th term or, 4th coefficient 15*x^2*y^4, when k=4.
Solution so far = x^6+6*x^5*y+15*x^4*y^2+20*x^3*y^3+15*x^2*y^4

This is the 5th term or, 5th coefficient 6*x*y^5, when k=5.
Solution so far = x^6+6*x^5*y+15*x^4*y^2+20*x^3*y^3+15*x^2*y^4+6*x*y^5

This is the 6th term or, 6th coefficient y^6, when k=6.
Solution so far = x^6+6*x^5*y+15*x^4*y^2+20*x^3*y^3+15*x^2*y^4+6*x*y^5+y^6

Putting the coefficients together was equal or, the same as for when I used the expand command on the Ti 89.

### Ti-84 BINOMIAL PDF

I encountered this same problem with the TI-84. Turns out you have to put your P (Percentage) as out of one hundred. For example. With my problem I had;

Trails: 13
P: 53/100
X Value: L1 (List 1)

And then it posted my probabilities to the L2 list. For some reason if you just put 53, or whatever your percentage of success in, it won't calculate.

### Error message with binopdf function

Yes, eleven million is rather extreme for the binomial distribution. For this large a value the binomial distribution is sufficiently indistinguishable from the normal approximation.
