    I think he means to find the third term when putting (x+y)^4 in standard descending expanded form.

    You could use pascal's triangle or the binomial theorem

    \[(a+b)^n=\left(\begin{matrix}n \\ 0\end{matrix}\right)a^na^0+\left(\begin{matrix} n \\ 1\end{matrix}\right)a^{n-1}b^1+\cdots +\left(\begin{matrix}n \\ k\end{matrix}\right)a^{n-k} b^k+\cdots \left(\begin{matrix}n \\ n\end{matrix}\right)a^0b^n\] where that one term that has all the k's is the k+1 term.
