Consider the expansion of and find ,
given that , and the ratio between and equals .
The ratio between two consecutive terms of an expansion of the binomial is .
Setting up a ratio between and gives the equation
The ratio is inverted to match the term it goes with. The ratio is given as .
Now, create another equation using the ratio of for
Divide the first equation by the second equation. This will eliminate the variable. Solve the equation for .
The value of is 32.
