hey, this is my problem:

Expand (a+b)^0, (a+b)^1, (a+b)^2, etc

(a+b)^0 = 1

(a+b)^1 = a + b

(a+b)^2 = a^2 + 2ab + b^2

(a+b)^3 = a^3 + 3a^(2)b + 3a(b^2) + b^3

(a+b)^4 = a^4 + 4(a^3)b + 6(a^2)(b^2) + b^4

I can see how this relates to pascals triangle, im just having a bit of trouble with a couple of questions about this...

What is the sum of the powers in each term of (a+b)^n?

all i can really think of is (a+b)^n = a^n + a^(n-1)... but im not sure what comes after this.

honestly i have no idea, but i think its something like that ^

Or i could be completely wrong. anyway, any help would be appreciated! thanks.
