    \binom in a table?

    \begin{tabular}{|l|l|l|l|}<br />
\hline<br />
stuff & \binom{7}{5} & stuff & stuff \\ \hline<br />
stuff & stuff & stuff & stuff \\<br />
stuff & stuff & stuff & stuff \\<br />
stuff & stuff & stuff & stuff \\<br />
\hline<br />
\end{tabular}

    \begin{tabular}{|l|l|l|l|}
    \hline
    W & \binom{7}{5} & M & stuff \\ \hline
    stuff & stuff & stuff & stuff \\
    stuff & stuff & stuff & stuff \\
    stuff & stuff & stuff & stuff \\
    \hline
    \end{tabular}

    Thanks...

    Table entries in the tabular environment are treated as text, not mathemetics. If you want to include math expressions, you need to enclose them in $$s:

    \begin{tabular}{|l|l|l|l|}
    \hline
    W & $\binom{7}{5}$ & M & stuff \\ \hline
    stuff & stuff & stuff & stuff \\
    stuff & stuff & stuff & stuff \\
    stuff & stuff & stuff & stuff \\
    \hline
    \end{tabular}


    \begin{tabular}{|l|l|l|l|}<br />
\hline<br />
W & $\binom{7}{5}$ & M & stuff \\ \hline<br />
stuff & stuff & stuff & stuff \\<br />
stuff & stuff & stuff & stuff \\<br />
stuff & stuff & stuff & stuff \\<br />
\hline<br />
\end{tabular}<br />
