    ^that is probably the ugliest way to do it I would use either Pascal's triangle or the binomial theorem

    binomial theorem:\[(a+b)^n=\sum_{k=0}^n\binom nka^{n-k}b^k\]where\[\binom nk={n!\over k!(n-k)!}\]

    if the binomial theorem looks like Greek to you then I would go with Pascal's triangle since it is only to the 5th power
