Why do you think that a finite degree polynomial is insufficient to represent the expansion of (1+x)^n, where n is not a positive integer? Can anyone pls enlighten me? Thank you

When is a positive integer, you can write ( times) which can then be expanded using the Distributive Law. Does this kind of "finite expansion" have any meaning when is not a positive integer?

Thank you Because , where n is not a postive integer is NOT a polynomial and so cannot be set equal to one!
