Binomial Chapter :: Help

How to solve this:

Find The value of :: 0nnPr\displaystyle{\sum _{ 0 }^{ n }{ { { ^{ n }{ P } } }_{ r } }} .

here P(n,r) means permutation of n things taken r at a time .

I have not study Binaomial chapter in detaied Yet . But I need this sumition whlile solving an question of PNC .

PLease Help , I have no idea for such summitions , Please Explain , Thanks a lot

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

We can actually evaluate the sum as Γ(n+1,1)\Gamma(n+1,1) , where Γ(a,x)\Gamma(a,x) is the Upper Incomplete Gamma function .

r=0n(nr)r!=r=0n(nr)0exxrdx=0r=0n(nr)exxrdx=0ex(1+x)ndx=eΓ(n+1,1)\begin{aligned} \sum_{r=0}^{n} \binom{n}{r} r! &= \sum_{r=0}^{n} \binom{n}{r} \int_{0}^{\infty} e^{-x} x^r \mathrm{d}x\\ &= \int_{0}^{\infty} \sum_{r=0}^{n} \binom{n}{r} e^{-x} x^r \mathrm{d}x\\ &= \int_{0}^{\infty} e^{-x} (1+x)^{n} \mathrm{d}x\\ &=\boxed{e \cdot \Gamma(n+1,1)}\end{aligned} .

This solution has been inspired from the genius Pratik Shastri's solution to this problem .

Can you please explain the second step , not getting

Well in the second step I've just taken the Summation into the integral .

0r=0n(nr)exxrdx\begin{aligned} \int_{0}^{\infty} \sum_{r=0}^{n} \binom{n}{r} e^{-x} x^r \mathrm{d}x\\ \end{aligned} and we all know that r=0n(nr)xr=(1+x)n \sum_{r=0}^{n} \binom{n}{r} x^r = (1+x)^{n} . And after that we just use the definition of Incomplete Upper Gamma Function .

@A Brilliant Member I am not getting how did you take the summation into integral , how is this valid , can you explain in more detail please

U Z - 4 years, 7 months ago

Log in to reply

@U Z The summation is dependant on x [i.e.dx] and the summation is independant of x [it's dependant on r]so I don't think that we should have a problem taking it into the integral .

@A Brilliant Member their upper limits are different , then also can we slide the summation into integral (how?) any reason?

U Z - 4 years, 7 months ago

@U Z Check this out.

Pratik Shastri - 4 years, 7 months ago

@U Z Since their limits are different, we can almost treat the Summation Term as a constant w.r.t the Integral (That's what I think) . BTW I'll ask Pratik Shastri and let you know

Ohh , so it is gamma summition . Can we use any other approach ? Since I didn't Know anything about gamma function , or can you please tell something about this gamma function ? I'am nwe to it . Thanks

Well even I am new to Gamma function . If you study the topic from Wolfram Mathworld , you will get some understanding . It's actually quite easy , we are just exploiting the properties of Gamma Function .

Do you know how to add a question in a white box?

U Z - 4 years, 7 months ago

Add ">>" before the text.

Use \boxed{}

@A Brilliant Member No , I am asking the way Karan posted the question in a white box , I am toogling latex but it does'nt show the code for it

@U Z Nope. Let's ask @KARAN SHEKHAWAT himself .
