Expanding functions in increasing powers

  1. Jul 12, 2011 #1
    I have not been taught how to do this and therefore unable to answer the following question :-

    Expand the function f(x) = (1+x)^3 in increasing powers of x ?

    Please help

    Hi struglnstudnt! :smile:

    You need to calculate

    [tex](1+x)^3=(1+x)(1+x)(1+x)[/tex]

    Just work out the brackets...
