What are the real life applications of binomial theorem and how it works?

Hi 666 bro,

It's used in statistics for the binomial distribution and to prove the differentiation rule for powers of x.

It crops up in Pascal's triangle and everything that follows from that.

There's a way to calculate the constant 'e' that uses the theorem.

I expect others could add to this list.

Have a look at this:
