**4. About The Binomial Theorem**

For a more detailed explanation, please first read the Theory Guides above.

The Binomial Theorem describes the expansion of powers of a binomial, using a sum of terms.

Coefficients in the expansion are called the **binomial coefficients.**

Pascal’s Triangle is a triangular array of binomial coefficients.

The below is given in the AH Maths exam:
