    use this : 30C0 (x^1/2)^30(1)^0 + 30C1 (x^1/2)^(30-1) (1)^1 + 30C2 (x^1/2)^(30-2) (1)^2 + 30C3 (x^1/2)^(30-3) (1)^3 calculate and simplify it

    the general formula of combination is |dw:1365545267017:dw| do u know about factorial :)

    actually, n and r are natural number

    well, first u have to know about factorial defined n! = n*(n-1)*(n-2)*... 3 . 2. 1 an example : 4! = 4 . 3 . 2 . 1 = 24 so far so good ?

    ah, as extra info defined 0! = 1 nah, let's going to combination above 30C0 = 30!/(30-0)!0! = 30!/30!*1 = 30!/30! = 1, right ?

    so, so on u can calculation of 30C2 and 30C3 right

    look, that i wrote expression about 1^0, 1^1, 1^2, 1^3. these are be 1 right ? and whatever if multiplied by 1 be its self, right ?

    then for simplify of (x^1/2)^30, u can use the property of exponent : (a^m)^n = a^(m*n) so, (x^1/2)^30 = x^16, right ?

    then so on, u have to simplify about (x^(1/2))^(30-1) = (x^(1/2))^(29) = x^(29/2) = sqrt(x^29) or u can modif again be sqrt(x^28 * x) = sqrt(x^28) sqrt(x) = (x^(28/2)) * sqrt(x) = x^14 * sqrt(x)

    it just simplification in radical form to exponential form

  30. RadEn

    or just one expression sqrt(x^29) only

    now, what about u with (x^1/2)^(30-2) (1)^2 = ... ?
