Homework Statement
Use the binomial series to expand the function as a power series.
1/(2+x)^{3}
I have attached an image. I understand untill the end of the second line. I don't see the reasoning used to follow through to the third line. the (1)^n is because the sign alternates becoming negative for every odd term. Are the 2's put on the top and the bottom so then the top 2, along with the number preceding it cancel with the (n!)? I have no clue how the (n+1) comes into play.
I would appreciate all the help!
