(2x^2 - 3/x)^18 how can I find the 16th term and follow up by finding the term that is independent of x?

Ok well I am sure that K = 12 and N = 18 so to set it up is 18c12 * (2x^2)^18-12 * (-3/x)^12 Right and follow through with that you gave for the 16th term? If not what does the 18 over 15 mean?
