Binomial coefficients with Mathcad 8.0?

Is there any quick and easy way to generate Binomial coefficients with Mathcad 8.0? 

 

Or do I just use the definition?

The function you are looking for is combin(n,k) for "n over k"

Example:

If you want to create your own  function, you must take care which definition to use, because factorials and Gamma function may easily exceed the limit of 10^307 and throw an error.
