  • The expansion of $(x+y)^n$ has $n+1$ terms
$(x+y)^{100}$ and $(x-y)^{100}$ have 101 terms each
In the expansion of $(x+y)^{100}+(x-y)^{100}$,
$2^{nd},4^{th},6^{th}.$..............terms get cancelled (total 50 terms) and
$1^{st},3^{rd}$.......... terms (total 51 terms) are added twice.
$\therefore$ no. of terms left over in the expansion = 51
