    Binomial Theorem

    Given that

    (1+x/2)^8(1-x)^6)≡1+Ax+Bx^2...

    find the constants A and B

    how would I solve for them, other than completely expanding each binomial?

    find the constants A and B
    \left(1+\frac{x}{2}\right)^8=1+4x+14x^2+\cdots
    (1-x)^6=1-x+15x^2+\cdots

    Mulriply those and see what happens.
