Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\large {^{2n} C _n} = {(^n C _0)}^2 +{(^n C _1)}^2 +{(^n C _2)}^2 +...+{(^n C _n)}^2 \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So in summation notation, show that\[\binom{2n}{n}=\sum_{i=0}^n \binom{n}{i}^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[LHS: \binom{2n}{n} x^{n} \] \[RHS\left[\binom{n}{0}\binom{n}{n}+\binom{n}{1}\binom{n}{n1}+\binom{n}{2}\binom{n}{n2}+....+\binom{n}{n2}\binom{n}{2}+\binom{n}{n1}\binom{n}{1}+\binom{n}{n}\binom{n}{0}\right] *x^n\] \[By ~Symmetry: \binom{n}{n} = \binom{n}{0} ; \binom{n}{n1} = \binom{n}{1} \] \[hence~ RHS = \left[\binom{n}{0}^{2}+\binom{n}{1}^{2}+\binom{n}{2}^{2}+...+\binom{n}{n}^{2}\right] x^n\] \[hence, coeeficients~ of~ x^n~ are~ the ~same \] \[\therefore, \binom{n}{0}^{2}+\binom{n}{1}^{2}+\binom{n}{2}^{2}+...+\binom{n}{n}^{2} = \binom{2n}{n} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sorry I made a typo at the end: \[\therefore, \binom{n}{0}^{2}+\binom{n}{1}^{2}+\binom{n}{2}^{2}+...+\binom{n}{n}^{2} = \binom{2n}{n} ^2\]
