What's \(C_i\)? \(i\)-th Catalan number? – Zi Song Yeoh · 4 years, 6 months ago

@Zi Song Yeoh – \(C_{i}^{2i}\) denotes combinations. – Bakshinder Singh · 4 years, 6 months ago

@Bakshinder Singh – I thought it was i-th Catalan number to the power of 2i. :) – Zi Song Yeoh · 4 years, 6 months ago

@Bakshinder Singh – same as \({2i \choose i}\) – Bakshinder Singh · 4 years, 6 months ago

expand it as (iC0)^2 + (iC1)^2 +........ (iCi)^2 and then summate each term separately.... – Jatin Yadav · 4 years, 5 months ago

@Harshit Kapur – Sorry, I didn't got your point! Here n=i and you can't take n as constant in summation. – Bakshinder Singh · 4 years, 6 months ago

@Bakshinder Singh – i know, but it is good to know that theorum too :) – Harshit Kapur · 4 years, 6 months ago

@Harshit Kapur – The summation still looks ugly after using it. Anyway it is a good theorem to know about. – Yong See Foo · 4 years, 6 months ago

It cant be solved by coefficent method approach. I tried!!! – Bakshinder Singh · 4 years, 6 months ago
