Exam-Style Questions on Binomial Theorem

Problems on Binomial Theorem adapted from questions set in previous exams.


IB Standard

If you expanded \((2x-3)^{15}\), the term containing \(x^6\) can be written as \(\binom{15}{a}\times(2x)^b\times(-3)^c\)

(a) Write down the values of \(a\), of \(b\) and \(c\).

(b) Find the coefficient of the term containing \(x^6\).


IB Standard

If \((x+5)^{10}\) is expanded

(a) how many terms would there be?

(b) what is the coefficient of the term containing \(x^4\)?


IB Standard

The constant term in the expansion of \(x^4(2x^2+\frac{m}{x})^7\) is 896

Find \(m\).
