# Is there a closed form?

Can anyone help me to find the coefficient of $$x^{49}$$ in $\displaystyle \prod_{r=1}^{50} [x - r(51-r)]?$

Sort by:

Coefficient of $$x^{49}$$ is equivalent to finding the sum of the roots of the equation if the expression is equated to zero.

In this case , $$\displaystyle [x^{49}] = \sum_{r=1}^{50}r(51-r) = 22100$$ · 6 months, 4 weeks ago
