    \[\large {^{2n} C _n} = {(^n C _0)}^2 +{(^n C _1)}^2 +{(^n C _2)}^2 +...+{(^n C _n)}^2 \]

    So in summation notation, show that\[\binom{2n}{n}=\sum_{i=0}^n \binom{n}{i}^2\]

    \[LHS: \binom{2n}{n} x^{n} \] \[RHS\left[\binom{n}{0}\binom{n}{n}+\binom{n}{1}\binom{n}{n-1}+\binom{n}{2}\binom{n}{n-2}+....+\binom{n}{n-2}\binom{n}{2}+\binom{n}{n-1}\binom{n}{1}+\binom{n}{n}\binom{n}{0}\right] *x^n\] \[By ~Symmetry: \binom{n}{n} = \binom{n}{0} ; \binom{n}{n-1} = \binom{n}{1} \] \[hence~ RHS = \left[\binom{n}{0}^{2}+\binom{n}{1}^{2}+\binom{n}{2}^{2}+...+\binom{n}{n}^{2}\right] x^n\] \[hence, coeeficients~ of~ x^n~ are~ the ~same \] \[\therefore, \binom{n}{0}^{2}+\binom{n}{1}^{2}+\binom{n}{2}^{2}+...+\binom{n}{n}^{2} = \binom{2n}{n} \]

    nothing. I said its easier to use vandermonde's identity.

    just plug in n every where except at k(its a summation variable).

    Sorry I made a typo at the end: \[\therefore, \binom{n}{0}^{2}+\binom{n}{1}^{2}+\binom{n}{2}^{2}+...+\binom{n}{n}^{2} = \binom{2n}{n} ^2\]
