**Consider the formula used to expand a Binomial Equation:**

Where:

Therefore, if we consider your equation:

From your equation, we can see that the power to which the equation is raised to is: 14.

**Before we have a look at the 8th term, let's have a look at the first term so we can observe the relationship between the Binomial Theory and the subsequent expansion: **

For the first term of:

**Now let's have a look at expanding the 8th Term of the equation:**
