The aim of this research paper is to obtain explicit expressions of (1-x) -2 a 2 F 1 [ a, b 2b+f; - 4 x / (1 - x) 2] for j = 0, ± 1, ± 2. For j = 0, we have the well-known transformation formula due to Gauss. The results are derived with the help of generalized Watson's theorem. Some known results obtained earlier follow special cases of our main findings.
