If we expand (x-1)(x-2).......(x-100) we  will get
(x-1)(x-2).......(x-100)=x100 -(1+2+3....100)x99+(Sum  of product of all first 100 integers taken two at a time)x98+................

Now we have to find "Sum of product of all first  100 integers taken two at a time" which is the required co-efficient.

(1+2+3+....100)2=12+22+32+.....+1002+2(Sum  of product of all first 100 integers taken two at a time)

So  Sum of product of all first 100 integers taken two at a  time=((1+2+3+....100)2-(12+22+32+.....+1002))/2

Now use 1+2+3+....+n=n(n+1)/2 and 12+22+32+.....+n2=n(n+1)(2n+1)/6

Here n=100

So we get the  required co-efficient=12582075

all the best
