find the 7th term of (x^3/2 y+b^2)^14

(x^3/2 y+b^2)^14
The coefficient of the ith term (i starts from zero) of a binomial expansion raised to the nth power is given by:
n!/[(ni)!i!]
So the ith term (i=0,1,2,...) is given by:
n!/[ni]!i!] * (x^(3/2)y)^(ni)*b^(2i)
For n=14, and i=7 (the middle term):
T7=3432(x^(3/2)y)^7*b^14
=3432x^(21/2)y^7b^14
