Example 7 Find the coefficient of x6y3 in the expansion of (x + 2y)9. We know that General term of expansion (a + b)n is Tr+1 = nCr an r br For (x + 2y)9, Putting n = 9 , a = x , b = 2y Tr+1 = 9Cr (x)9 r (2y)r = 9Cr (x)9 r . (y)r . (2)r We need to find coefficient of x6 y3 Comparing yr = y3 r = 3 Putting r = 3 in (1) T3+1 = 9C3 x9 3 . y3 . (2)3 = 9! 3! 9 3 ! x6 . y3 . (2)3 = 9! 3! 6! (2)3 x6 y3 = 9 8 7 6! 3 2 1 6! 8 . x6 y3 = 9 8 7 8! 3 2 x6 y3 = 672 x6 y3 Hence coefficient of x6 y3 is 672
