In the expansion of (x^3 - (2/x^2))^10, find the term in x^10, the coefficient of 1/x^5 and the constant term. OpenStudy (anonymous):

$(x^3 -\frac{2}{x^2})^{10}$Right? OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes :) OpenStudy (anonymous):

okay Take $$\frac{1}{x^2}$$ common and apply binomial expansion ah I don't remember the binomial expansion. OpenStudy (anonymous):

i remember it. Tr+1 = (n,r) a^n-r * b^r. but i don't know which term will give me x^10. there could be terms added up and all, right? OpenStudy (anonymous):

ah okay $T_{r+1} = (n,r) a^{n-r}*b^r$ OpenStudy (anonymous):

so we have $$\frac{1}{x^2}$$ out that makes it $$\frac{1}{x^{20}}$$ OpenStudy (anonymous):

and the series expansion becomes $$(x^5 + 2 )^{10}$$ so we need x^15 here to make it $$\frac{1}{x^5}$$ OpenStudy (anonymous):

n-r = 3 OpenStudy (anonymous):

r = 7 OpenStudy (anonymous):

co-efficient is $$(10,7)\frac{1}{x^5}*2^7$$ OpenStudy (anonymous):

exclude the x and you have the coefficient
