What is the sum of the coefficients of ( [3x - 3x^2 +1]^744 ) x ( [- 3x + 3x^2 +1]^745 )?

Though not particularly necessary, I'd personally appreciate it if you were to explain all of the steps and processes involved.

You should remember that you may evaluate the sum of coefficients of a polynomial if you substitute 1 for the variable x such that:

`(3x - 3x^2 +1)^744 = (3*1 - 3*1^2 + 1)^744`

`(3x - 3x^2 +1)^744 = (3 - 3 + 1)^744`

`(3*1 - 3*1^2 + 1)^744 = 1^744 = 1`

`(-3x + 3x^2 +1)^745 = (-3*1 + 3*1^2 + 1)^745`

`(-3x + 3x^2 +1)^745 = (-3 + 3 + 1)^745`

`(-3x + 3x^2 +1)^745 = 1^745 = 1`

`(3x - 3x^2 +1)^744*(-3x + 3x^2 +1)^745 = 1*1 = 1`

**Hence, evaluating the sum of coefficients and the given multiplication yields `(3x - 3x^2 +1)^744*(-3x + 3x^2 +1)^745 = 1.` **

F(x) = (1+3x-3x^2)^744 *(1-3x+3x^2)^745...(1)

Sum of the coefficient of x will be:

put x=1 in eq(1)

f(1) = (1+3-3)^744 * (1-3+3)^745=1

This is the sum of the coefficient that is = 1

The given expression could be written as below:

f(x) = (1+3x-3x^2)^744 *(1-3x+3x^2)^745 = A0+A1x+Ax^2+A3x^3+...................................(1)

We are required to find the sum of the coefficients of x which is equal to A1+A2+A3+....

We put x = 1 in (1) and get:

f(1) = (1+3-3)^744 * (1-3+3)^745 = A0+A1+A2+A3+......

Therefore f(1) = 1^744 * 1^745 = **1 = A0+A1+A2+A3...**

**Therefore the sum of the coefficients of x in (1+3x-3x^2)^744 *(1-3x+3x^2)^745 is 1**.
