(2x+1)^12

= (2x)^12 + 12(2x)^11 + ...

= 2^12 x^12 + 12*2^11 x^11 + ...

(x+1)^18 = x^18 + 18x^17 + 9*17 x^16 + ...

= 2^12 x^30 + (18*2^12 + 12)x^29 + ...

so, 18*2^12 + 12 = 73740

(2x+1)^12 = 2^12 x^12 + 12*2^11 x^11 + ...

(x+1)^18 = x^18 + 18x^17 + ...

multiply the two expansions to get

2^12 x^30 + (18*2^12 + 12*2^11) x^29 + ...

so, we have 18*2^12 + 12*2^11 = 98304
