Homework Help: The 360th power of a function

  1. Nov 21, 2004 #1
    given f(x) = 1/(1-X), X is a real number and that X is not 0 or 1;

    Write down the expression for the 360th power of the function f(x).

    I managed to solve for the 4th power etc but i was not able to find a general formula so i am unable to deduce such an high power.

    Can anyone help me? :smile:

    What is exactly the idea of this exercise?
    It probably not asking for:
    [tex]f(x)^{360}=\frac{1}{(1-x)^{360}}[/tex]

    If you want to expand the denominator, use the binomial theorem.
