# Find sum of even index binomial coefficients in C++

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

Consider we have a number n, we have to find the sum of even indexed binomial coefficients like $$\left(\begin{array}{c}n\\ 0\end{array}\right)+\left(\begin{array}{c}n\\ 2\end{array}\right)+\left(\begin{array}{c}n\\ 4\end{array}\right)+\left(\begin{array}{c}n\\ 6\end{array}\right)+...\left(\begin{array}{c}4\\ 0\end{array}\right)+\left(\begin{array}{c}4\\ 2\end{array}\right)+\left(\begin{array}{c}4\\ 4\end{array}\right)++=1+6+1=8$$

So here we will find all the binomial coefficients, then only find the sum of even indexed values.

## Example

Live Demo

#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
int evenIndexedTermSum(int n) {
int coeff[n + 1][n + 1];
for (int i = 0; i <= n; i++) {
for (int j = 0; j <= min(i, n); j++) {
if (j == 0 || j == i)
coeff[i][j] = 1;
else
coeff[i][j] = coeff[i - 1][j - 1] + coeff[i - 1][j];
}
}
int sum = 0;
for (int i = 0; i <= n; i += 2)
sum += coeff[n][i];
return sum;
}
int main() {
int n = 8;
cout << "Sum of even placed binomial coefficients: " <<evenIndexedTermSum(n);
}

## Output

Sum of even placed binomial coefficients: 128
