Solving implies that you are dealing with an equation.
You did not give an equation.

What is it equal to??
You still did not state the "equation"
It should look something like
(3x-5)^3 = ????
are you just expanding (3x+5)^3
you could do it the long way by doing
or you could use Pascal's triangle whose third row has coefficients 1 3 3 1
= 1(3x)^3 + 3(3x^2)(5) + 3(3x)(5^2) + 5^3
= 27x^3 + 135x^2 + 225x + 125
