    given: \[(p+q)^n\] we can work out the middle stuff as:\[p^{n-c}q^c\] the coeeficient is a little tricker unless you know about combinatorics

    that looks about right, but if i remember it correctly: the first term starts at 9 and drops down till it hits the 7th term

    (a+b)^9 a^9 a^8 a^7 a^6 a^5 a^4 a^3 ^^^ b^0 b^1 b^2 .... b^6 ^^^ these always get turned around in my head
