Example 6 Show that the middle term in the expansion of (1 + x)2n is īˇ1 . 3 . 5 âĻ. (2đ â 1)īˇŽđ!īˇ¯ 2n xn, where n is a positive integer. Number of terms = 2n which is even So middle term = (īˇ2nīˇŽ2īˇ¯ + 1)th term = (n + 1)th term Hence, we need to find Tn+1 We know that general term of (a + b)nis Tr + 1 = nCr an-r br For Tn + 1 , Putting n = 2n , r = n , a = 1 & b = x Tn+1 = 2nCn (1)2nân (x)n = īˇīˇ2đīˇ¯!īˇŽđ!īˇ2đ âđīˇ¯!īˇ¯ .
