# Answer the following: Using binomial theorem, find the value of 9953 upto four places of decimals - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Using binomial theorem, find the value of root(3)(995) upto four places of decimals

#### Solution

root(3)(995) = (995)^(1/3)

= (100 - 5)^(1/3)

= [100 (1 - 5/1000)]^(1/3)

= 10(1 - 5/1000)^(1/3)

= 10[1 - 1/3(5/1000) + (1/3(1/3 - 1))/(2!) (5/1000)^2 - ...]

= 10[1 - 1/600 + 1/3((-2)/3)(1/2)(1/200)^2 - ...]

= 10[1 – 0.00167 + ...]

= 10(0.99833)

= 9.9833
