1. Find if the coefficients of in the expansion of are equal.

Answer:

It is known that in the binomial expansion of is given by

Assuming that occurs in the term in the expansion of

Comparing the indices of in and in ,

So, the coefficient of is

Assuming that occurs in the term in the expansion of

Comparing the indices of in and in , we obtain

So, the coefficient of is

It is given that the coefficients of and are the same.

So, the required value of is
