Java Guava | binomial() method of IntMath Class

The binomial(int n, int k) method of Guava’s IntMath class accepts two parameters n and k and calculate the value of the binomial coefficient {n}\choose{k}.

If the calculated value overflows the maximum value of an integer than the method returns Integer.MAX_VALUE or in other words the maximum value of an integer.

Syntax :

public static int binomial(int n, int k)

Parameter: This method accepts two parameters n and k and calculate the value of the binomial coefficient {n}\choose{k}.

Return Value : The method returns the binomial coefficient of n and k.

Exceptions : The method binomial(int n, int k) throws IllegalArgumentException if n < 0, k < 0 or k > n.

Below examples illustrate the binomial() method of IntMath class:

    // Driver code

    {
        int n = 5;
        int k = 2;
  
        // Using binomial(int n, int k) method of
        // Guava's IntMath class
        int ans = IntMath.binomial(n, k);
  
        System.out.println("Binomial Coefficient of " + n 
                              + " and " + k + " is : " + ans);
  
        int n1 = 15;
        int k1 = 9;
  
        // Using binomial(int n, int k) method of
        // Guava's IntMath class
        int ans1 = IntMath.binomial(n1, k1);
  
        System.out.println("Binomial Coefficient of " + n1 
                             + " and " + k1 + " is : " + ans1);
    }
}
