THE MATHEMATICAL EQUATION
To find an sum of a binomial expression of the form (a+b)n can be difficult. For instance

(a+b)n = (a+b) X (a+b) X (a+b) X (a+b) ...

So if a=1 then this is as simple as an expansion of a sum shown below

$\left(1+x{\right)}^{n}=1+\frac{nx}{1!}+\frac{n\left(n-1\right){x}^{2}}{2!}+....$

(g) Add a footer of your name and class. Save the document as DBMS1. (2 marks)
