## Main Question or Discussion Point

Okay, well, perhaps I am already done, perhaps not. This is why I seek your wisdom :)

If you are asked to find the first 5 terms of the expansion (1 + 0.07)^9 using the Binomial Theorem, and then asked to use these terms to estimate the value of 1.07^9 what would you put?

I added the 5 terms and wrote that I estimate the value of 1.07^9 would be that sum.

Is this all the question is asking? Or are you supposed to go further with the terms and do something mathematical? :yuck:
