Given,

The Expression:

$\left(\frac{2}{x} - \frac{x}{2} \right )^5$

the expansion of this Expression is,

$\left(\frac{2}{x} - \frac{x}{2} \right )^5\Rightarrow$

$\\^5C_0\left(\frac{2}{x}\right)^5-^5C_1\left(\frac{2}{x}\right)^4\left(\frac{x}{2}\right)+^5C_2\left(\frac{2}{x}\right)^3\left(\frac{x}{2}\right)^2$$-^5C_3\left(\frac{2}{x}\right)^2\left(\frac{x}{2}\right)^3+^5C_4\left(\frac{2}{x}\right)^1\left(\frac{x}{2}\right)^4-^5C_5\left(\frac{x}{2}\right)^5$

$\Rightarrow \frac{32}{x}-5\left ( \frac{16}{x^4} \right )\left ( \frac{x}{2} \right )+10\left ( \frac{8}{x^3} \right )\left ( \frac{x^2}{4} \right )-10\left ( \frac{4}{x^2} \right )\left ( \frac{x^2}{8} \right )$$+5\left ( \frac{2}{x} \right )\left ( \frac{x^4}{16} \right )-\frac{x^5}{32}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{32}{x^5}-\frac{40}{x^3}+\frac{20}{x}-5x+\frac{5x^2}{8}-\frac{x^3}{32}$
