  • question_answer
    If the \[{{(r+1)}^{th}}\]term in the expansion of\[{{\left( \sqrt[3]{\frac{a}{\sqrt{b}}}+\sqrt[{}]{\frac{b}{\sqrt[3]{a}}} \right)}^{21}}\]has the same power of a and b, then the value of r is

    A) 9

    B) 10

    C) 8            

    D) 6

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    We have\[{{T}_{r+1}}{{=}^{21}}{{C}_{r}}{{\left( \sqrt[3]{\frac{a}{\sqrt{b}}} \right)}^{21-r}}{{\left( \sqrt[{}]{\frac{b}{\sqrt[3]{a}}} \right)}^{r}}\] \[{{=}^{21}}{{C}_{r}}{{a}^{7-(r/2)}}{{b}^{(2/3)r-(7/2)}}\] Since the powers of a and b are same, \[\therefore \]\[7-\frac{r}{2}=\frac{2}{3}r-\frac{7}{2}\Rightarrow r=9\]
