I need to find the coefficient of x^18 y^32 in (x+y)^50.

I understand that we have to use the binomial theorem. I know how to

find the coefficient for example x^18 but here we have "x" as well as

"y" which I have no idea about.

general term(r+1)

= C(50,r)(x^(50-r) y^r

comparing this with ? x^18 y^32 we can see that r = 32

so we want C(50,32) which is 1.80535 x 10^13
