Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2This is going to be long a messy in practice although simple in theory. Consider first (x + (y+z) )^10. This is a binomial in x and (y+z). Expand this using standard binomial theory. Then you will need to expand all of the (y+z)^j terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2To work a smaller example, consider (x+y+z)^3. Write this as (x + (y+z) )^3. By the binomial theorem this is equal to x^3 + 3x^2(y+z) + 3x(y+z)^2 + (y+z)^3 Now expand the (y+z) terms x^3 + 3x^2y + 3x^2z + 3xy^2 + 6xyz + 3xz^2 + y^3 + 3y^2z + 3yz^2 + z^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would just use the multinomial expansion

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That too. Either way, it's going to be tedious calculation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2although perhaps it would result in a slightly neater arrangement of terms. x^3 + y^3 + z^3 + 3(x^2y + y^2z + z^2x + x^2z + y^2x + z^2y) + 6xyz
