Re: Happy Birthday, Alokananda!

Then let me wish her a Happy Birthday, that might help.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

Re: Happy Birthday, Alokananda!

That is a good idea.

Re: Happy Birthday, Alokananda!

Why won't she be? But where is your Happy Birthday post?

Oops!

how do I compute the last three digits of 2014C1+2014C3+2014C5+...+2014C2013 by hand?

Consider the question: In how many ways can you select things from a collection of 2014 things?

This is equivalent to 2014C1 + 2014C2 + 2014C3 + .. 2014C2014

For each doll you have, 2 choices. To select it or not, so there are 2^2014 ways.

Now, for only odd number of dolls:

Half of those cases we selected odd number of dolls

This is equivalent to asking in how many cases you are choosing the odd terms.

Clearly the answer is 2^2013
