To determine

To find:

The first three terms in the expansion of (x+1x)40

Explanation

Given:

The binomial expression (x+1x)40

Approach:

Use the formula for expansion of given binomial expression to compute the first three terms.

Calculation:

The binomial expression can be expanded as

(x+1x)40=k=040(40k)(x)40k(1x)k

The first three terms in the expansion given above corresponds to k=0,1,2

So the first three terms are

(400)(x)400(1x)0+(
