    Yup perfectly viable method, probably the prefered way to be honest as less computation. Do it that way and check the answers to find out.

    Okay so this is for the edexcel board, is it ever possible that a question regarding finding the independent value of x in a binomial will come up?

    To make it clear, here's a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AYyOp69Qx8
