    We would not know what you are doing wrong (if any) unless you post your working, would we?
    By the way, you can use [tex] [/math] to format latex equations, which will make things easier.

    exponents are fine ... how did you arrrive at 10/3 and 25/3 as coefficients for each respective term?

    One thing you are doing wrong is that your result is not at all general!
