I was away for this Maths Lesson, and this question has cropped up. I can't find anywhere on the internet that tells me how to Equate Coefficients, so I need some help. =)
Given that. (2+x)^5 + (2-x)^5 (triple equals sign?) A+ Bx^2+Cx^4
Find the values of the constants A, B, and C.
What do I do?

Expand the brackets using the binomial expansion.
The odd powers will cancel out, leaving you only the even powers.
The coefficients will be the values you need for A B C
