Definition of Binomial theorem
1. Noun. (mathematics) A formula giving the expansion of a binomial such as $(\; a\; +\; b\; )$ raised to any positive integer power, i.e. $(\; a\; +\; b\; )^\{n\}$. It's possible to expand the power into a sum of terms of the form $ax^\{b\}y^\{c\}$ where the coefficient of each term is a positive integer. For example: ¹
