a) The number of terms in the expansion (x + a)n is n + 1.

b) The sum of the power of x and a in any term in the expansion of (x + a)n is n.
c) The general term in the expansion of (x + a)n is Tr + 1 = nCrxn rar.

In the expansion of (x + a)n, rth term from the end is equal to (n r + 2)th terms from
the beginning.

If n is a +ve integer, then (1+x)n = 1 + n c 1 x + n c 2 x 2 + n c 3 x 3 +..........+ n c r x r +......+ x n .

If C r stands for n c r , ( 1 + x) n = c 0 + c1x + c 2 x 2 +......+c n x n .
