As, $\left [ x^{4}\right ]=\left [ x^{5} \right ]$

$\binom{504}{4}.p^{4}.q^{500}=\binom{504}{5}.p^{5}.q^{499}$

=$\binom{504}{4}.q=\binom{504}{5}.p$

$\frac{p}{q}=\frac{1}{100}$

So, p+q=101

What's the relationship between combination and polynomial equation? I mean, I am not able to grasp certain points here or let's say connect them into a whole: 1. Take a question where it's asked that we have to arrange 10 books : 4 of A, 3 of B, ... turn would mean no way of doing probability's tricky questions. EDIT: Here's the images of different questions. How do I differentiate between them?
