# Use binomial theorem to evaluate the following upto four places of decimal 1263 - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Use binomial theorem to evaluate the following upto four places of decimal

root(3)(126)

#### Solution

root(3)(126) = (126)^(1/3)

= (125 + 1)^(1/3)

= [125(1 + 1/125)]^(1/3)

= (125)^(1/3) (1 + 1/125)^(1/3)

= 5[1 + 1/3(1/125) + (1/3(1/3 - 1))/(2!) (1/125)^2 + ...]

= 5[1 + 1/375 + 1/3(-2/3)(1/2)(1/15625) + ...]

= 5 [1 + 0.00266 – 0.000007 + ... ]

= 5 (1.00266) = 5.0133, upto 4 places of decimals.
