Please solve the problem of Binomial theory.

Prove that C0C1+C1C2+C2C3+……………+Cn-1Cn= (2n)!/(n+1)!(n-1)! - June 17th 2008, 05:32 AMsomnath6088
The C0 implies C(subscript 0).Which are binomial constants.

Hello,

Please use (n,p) if you mean pCn, like you wrote...

And the latter term is not understandable...

use parenthesis, power ^, etc... - June 18th 2008, 12:49 AMmr fantastic
Since , you only need to prove the following:

Note that:

.... (1)

Differentiate both sides of (1) with respect to x:

.... (2)

(Identity (2) can also be proved using a combinatorial argument)

Now substitute x = 1 into (2). Then multiply both sides by 4 and you get the result. - June 18th 2008, 02:13 AMmr fantastic
Is it meant to read

?

This statement is FALSE. Substitute n = 1, for example, to see this.

The correct identity is given (and a solution suggested) in this thread: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...l-problem.html - June 18th 2008, 03:01 AMmr fantastic
