If the Coefficients of X2 and X3 in the Expansion of (3 + Ax)9 Are the Same, Then the Value of a Is(A) − 7 9(B) − 9 7(C) 7 9(D) 9 7 - Mathematics

MCQ

If the coefficients of x2 and x3 in the expansion of (3 + ax)9 are the same, then the value of a is

Options

  • \[- \frac{7}{9}\]

     

  • \[- \frac{9}{7}\]

     

  • \[\frac{7}{9}\]

     

  • \[\frac{9}{7}\]

Solution

 \[\frac{9}{7}\]

Coefficients of x2 Coefficients of x3

\[^{9}{}{C}_2 \times 3^{9 - 2} a^2 = ^{9}{}{C}_3 \times 3^{9 - 3} a^3 \]
\[ \Rightarrow a = \frac{^{9}{}{C}_2}{^{9}{}{C}_3} \times 3\]
\[ = \frac{9! \times 3! \times 6! \times 3}{2! \times 7! \times 9!}\]
\[ = \frac{9}{7}\]
