Numerical Analysis - Binomial Theorem Demo

Environment: Visual C++

I wrote this piece of code to explain the working of Binomial Theorem to a younger friend. Thought it would be useful for other students too.

I built a class that could take names of two variables, like 'a' and 'b' and the power and sign (+ or -). It will then evaluate the terms using the Binomial Theorem. Students can get an understanding of the Binomial theorem as well as some programming concepts like recursion, encapsulation, data abstraction etc.

The UI is pretty simple

    And thank you to the Vinayak Raghuvamshi. I am a freelance C++ programmer who is always churning out 'boring code' which gets the job done and keeps the client happy.

    I get very little opportunity for programming 'fun' but this looks like my luck is about to change. I am now going to download and enjoy both the maths and hopefully the code. I feel one can always learn from another's efforts.

    If certain people feel they are too clever then I feel they don't know as much as they think they do. I have been programming since 1974 and the more I learn, the more I realise I don't know.

    After I have absorbed the lesson then maybe I will have some meaningful comments for the actual subject matter.

    PS: David Sharp - your comment doesn't word wrap. Perhaps you could modify it please?

    1) At no time in the article does the author state that it is a revolutionary piece of code.

    2)If it is of no use to you don't read it.

    3)This code is useful on many levels, for programmers who don't model mathematics in their programs, and also as an example that everyone understands the mathematics of this would be very useful to someone moving to VC++ from another language.

    What great peices of programming genius have the gainsayers of this article actually contributed?

    I for one think articles of this nature should keep coming
