Hi, I'm currently taking a Discrete Mathematics class and cannot seem to work out this one problem, we need to find the x^10 term in order to determine its coefficient of the equation f(x)=(x+x^2+x^3+x^4+x^5+x^6)^3 I know the answer is to be 27 from a previous problem (we are to use this method to verify our answer) but I cant seem to figure it out. I started with thinking of trying to solve x^3/((1-x)^3)-the sum of x^n starting with n≥7, but that doesn't seem to be working. Any suggestions would be appreciated!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
