Try with Hints


First hint

\((\frac{1-x^{3}}{1-x})^{10}\)

=\((1-x^{3})^{10}(1-x)^{-10}\)

=\((1-{10 \choose 1}x^{3}\)

\(+{10 \choose 2}x^{6}+....)(1-10(-x)\)

\(+\frac{(-10)(-10)-1}{2}(-x)^{2}+.....)\)

Second Hint

coefficient of \(x^{2}\)=\(\frac{(-10)((-10)-1)}{2}\)

Final Step

=\({10 \choose 1}+{10 \choose 2}\).
