Given expansion ( 2 x 9 y ) 200 the coefficient of x 101 y 99
( x + a ) n Generate term T γ + 1 = n r γ x n γ a γ
= 200 c γ 2 200 γ x 200 γ ( 3 ) γ y γ
here r=99, 200-99=101
= 200 c 9 9 2 200 99 x 200 99 ( 3 ) 99 y 99
= 200 c 9 9 2 101 x 101 ( 3 ) 99 y 99
The coefficient of x 101 y 99 is
200 c 9 9 2 101 ( 3 ) 99
option B

At a certain college, 6% of all students come from outside the United States. Incoming students there are assigned at random to freshman dorms, where students live in residential clusters of 40 freshmen sharing a common lounge area. How many international students would you expect to find in a typical cluster? With what standard deviation?

Show that a single binomial probability can be written as the sum of two binomial probabilities
I am trying to prove that the sum of two independent binomial probabilities with the same parameter (probability of success in a single trial) is equivalent to a binomial probability with the same parameter , but an index (number of trials) and number of successes that is equivalent to the sum of the indexes from the first two binomial probabilities and the sum of the number of successes from the first two binomial probabilities.
I think the basic idea is that the binomial probability of an event can be broken up and calculated in two "chunks" which can be summed to find the desired binomial probability.
Sorry for not including any mathematical operators in this post; I am unfamiliar with how they are actually written in this type of a post.
Edit: ( n x ) π x ( 1 π ) n x = ( a y ) π y ( 1 π ) a y + ( b z ) π z ( 1 π ) b z where a + b = n and y + z = x

A meteorologist preparing a talk about global warming compiled a list of weekly low temperatures (in degree s Fahrenheit) he observed at his southern Florida home last year. The coldest temperature for any week was 36°F, but he inadvertently recorded the Celsius value of 2°. Assuming that he correctly listed all the other temperatures, explain how this error will affect these summary statistics:
a) measures of center: mean and median. b) measures of spread: range, IQR, and standard deviation.

i'm seeking out thoughts for a 15-hour mathematical enrichment course in a chinese language high faculty. What (pretty) simple concern would you advocate as a subject for any such course?
historical past/issues:
My students are generally pretty good at math, but many of them have no longer been uncovered to rigorous or summary mathematical reasoning. an amazing topic would be one that could not be impossibly hard for students who have by no means written or study proofs in English.
i have taught this magnificence three times earlier than. (a part of the purpose that i'm posting that is that i have used up all my thoughts!) the primary semester I taught an introductory range theory elegance (which meandered its way toward a proof of quadratic reciprocity, though I think this become in the end too advanced/abstract for some of the students). the second one semester I taught fundamental graph idea and packages (with a focal point on planarity and coloring). The 1/3 semester I taught a class at the Rubik's dice.
the students' math backgrounds are pretty numerous: a number of them take part in contest math competitions, and so are familiar with IMO-fashion techniques, however many aren't. a number of them may additionally realize some calculus, however I cannot assume it. all of them are superb at what in the united states is on occasion termed "pre-calculus": trigonometry, conic sections, systems of linear equations (though, shockingly, no matrices), and the like. They realize what a binomial coefficient is.
So, any ideas? preferably, i'd like to find some thing a bit "sexy" (like the Rubik's cube) -- tries to encourage wide variety theory through cryptography seemed to fall on deaf ears, however being capable of "see" institution idea on the cube became pretty popular.
(Responses specifically welcome from folks who grew up in the percent -- any mathematical subjects you desire were protected within the excessive college curriculum?)
