Find the constant term in the expansion of [x + (3/x squared)]^9
Find the coefficient of (x)^4(y)^9 in the expansion of (x + (2)(y)^3)^7

for the first one, first of all, find the general term.
I got
C(7,r)x^(7r)(3/x^2)^r
=c(7,r)(3)^r x^(93r)
for that to be a constant the exponent of the x terms must be zero,so
93r=0
r=3
so the constant term is C(7,3)(3^3) = 2268
for the second question, to have the x^4, it must be term number 3.
You work this one out, let me know what you got 
correction, whenever you see a 7, it should be a 9
so here it is again
