# If the sum of the coefficients in the expansion of $(x+y)^n$ is 4096, then the greatest coefficient in the expansion is ?

$\begin{array}{1 1} 924 \\ 792 \\ 1594 \\ 942 \end{array}$

Toolbox:
• sum of the coefficients in the expansion $(x+y)^n$ = $2^n$
• If $n$ is even, then the greatest coefficient of $^nC_r$ for $r=1,2,.......n$ is $^nC_{\large\frac{n}{2}}$
Given : $2^n=4096$
$\Rightarrow\:n=12$
