    Hey everyone, I'm stuck on this binomial questions and was wondering if anyone could help.
    a) The first four terms of the binomial expansion of (1+x/4)^8 in ascending powers of x are 1 + ax + bx^2 + cx^3 . Find the values of the constants a, b and c.
    b) Hence find the coefficient of x in the expansion of (1+4/x)^2 (1+x/4)^8.

    I've done question a but do not know how to proceed with b. Any help would be much appreciated.
