    1 11 121 1331 14641 15 10 5 1 1 6 15 15 6 1 1 7 21 30 21 7 1 ____^ that right there. 21 is the coefficient. The x's power starts at 7, and decreases by one each term. The 2 does the opposite. In the seventh row, the third number is the coefficient of this term. so x^5*2^3*21 is 168*x^5 do you get it, or would you like me to explain a bit more?
