Find the 4th term in the expansion of  (x-2y)^{12}.

Answers (1)

As we know that the general  (r+1)^{th} term  T_{r+1} in the binomial expansion of  (a+b)^n  is given by 

T_{r+1}=^nC_ra^{n-r}b^r

So the 4^{th} term of the expansion of (x-2y)^{12} is

\\\Rightarrow T_4= T_{3+1}\\=^{12}C_3(x)^{12-3}(-2y)^3\\=(-2)^3\times^{12}C_3x^{9}y^3\\=-8\times\frac{12!}{3!9!}x^{9}y^3

\\=-8\times \frac{12\times11\times10}{3\times2}\times x^9y^3\\=-8\times220\times x^9y^3 \\=-1760x^9y^3.
