## binomial coefficientAny of the coefficients of the powers of x or y in the expansion (see binomial
theorem) of (x + y)^{n}. The binomial coefficient of a typical term x^{(n - m)}y,
written ^{m}_{n}C_{m}, or (^{m}_{n}),
gives the number of ways of picking m unordered outcomes from n
possibilities, and is also known as a combination.
It has the value n!/(n - m)!m! The binomial coefficients form the rows of Pascal's triangle. ## Related category• COMBINATORICS | |||||
