Probability and the Binomial Theorem: Quick Revision of Formulae for IIT JEE, UPSEE & WBJEE

Jan 4, 2017 17:27 IST

    Find quick revision notes of unit Probability and the Binomial Theorem. This includes chapters- Binomial Theorem, Permutation and Combination, and Probability. This quick revision notes is very important for competitive examination as it will help in revising complete unit in very less time. In UPSEE, WBJEE and other engineering entrance examinations some questions are asked directly on formula basis. This revision notes will help you in revising formulae.

    Probability and the Binomial Theorem

    Binomial Theorem

    • Binomial theorem is used for the expansion of any positive integral power of binomial expression.

         Binomial Theorem, Permutation, Probability

    • In the expansion of (a + b)n, the general term is denoted as  Tr + 1

    • In the expansion of (a + b)n, the middle terms are:

                (a) If n is even, then there is only one middle term which is given by,

    • Term independent of x contains no x, hence, find the value of r for which the exponent of x is zero.

    Permutation and Combination

    • Permutation is the possible arrangements of a collection of things, where the order is important.
    • If an event can occur in m different ways, following which another event can occur in n different ways, following which a third event can occur in p different ways, then the total number of occurrence to ‘the events in the given order is m × n × p.
    • The  number  of  permutations  of  n  different  objects  taken  r  at  a  time, where

                0 < rn and the objects do not repeat  is

                Binomial Theorem, Permutation, Probability

    • The  number  of  permutations  of  n  different  objects  taken  r  at  a  time, where repetition is allowed, is nr.
    • The  number  of  permutations  of  n objects,  where  p  objects  are  of  the same kind and rest are all different is

              Binomial Theorem, Permutation, Probability

    • The number of permutations of n  objects, where  p1 objects are of one kind, p2 are of second kind, ..., pk are of  kth kind and the rest, if any, are of different kind is

              Binomial Theorem, Permutation, Probability

    • The number of circular permutations of n distinct objects is (n − 1)!.
    • If clockwise and anti clockwise circular permutations are considered to be same, then it is

              Binomial Theorem, Permutation, Probability

    • Combination is the possible arrangements of a collection of things, where the order is not important.

          Binomial Theorem, Permutation, Probability

    • The number of r-combinations of n distinct objects with repetition is

               Binomial Theorem, Permutation, Probability

          Binomial Theorem, Permutation, Probability

    • Number of ways in which at least one object may be selected out of p alike objects of one type q alike objects of second type and r alike object of third type is

                (p + 1)(q + 1)(r + 1) − 1

    • Number of ways in which at least one object may be selected from n objects where p alike objects of one type q alike objects of second type and r alike object of third type and rest are different is

                (p + 1)(q + 1)(r + 1)2n − (p + q + r) − 1

    • Number of ways in which n letters can be put in n corresponding envelopes such that no letter  goes to correct envelopes is
