${x}^{3} + 3 {x}^{2} y + 3 x {y}^{2} + {y}^{3}$

#### Explanation:

You can use Pascal's triangle

$$              1
1  2  1
1   3   3  1


The third row is 1, 3, 3, 1,
so the expansion is ${x}^{3} + 3 {x}^{2} y + 3 x {y}^{2} + {y}^{3}$

The answer is (x + y) (x + y) (x + y).

#### Explanation:

There really is no detail to add. Just remember that an exponent means that you multiply the base (in this case (x + y)) the number of times equal to the number of the exponent (in this case 3).

Expand just means to write it all out in detail as much as possible instead of the shorthand (with the exponent).
