Question:

Find the first 3 terms in the expansion, in ascending powers of x, of

(2 + x)^6. Hence, obtain the coefficient of x^2 in the expansion of

(2 + x - x^2)^6

I know the first part of the question, and the first 3 terms are

(64 + 192x + 240x^2 + ...)

How do i use this answer in the second part??

- same type of binomial theorem question -
