I'm asking because I am, and I've seen this problem or a binomial theorem problem similar to this before since Im in Honors Alg 2 :) So I'm just wondering if you are.

We can write this as

 

[ b(a + c) + ca ] 12

 

We have .....

 

C( 12, 1) * [ b ( a + c)]11 * (ca)1   =

 

(12)b11 * (a + c)11 * a1 c1  =

 

(12)acb11 * (a + c)11  =

 

(12)acb11 *  C(11,3) (a)8 * c3  =

 

(12) acb11 * (165)a8 c3  =

 

1980  a9 b11  c4

 

 

cool cool cool
