$(a+b)^n = \sum \limits_{k=0}^n \dbinom{n}{k} a^k b^{nk}$ $\text{Let }b=1$ and see what that gets you. For the second one note that by the nature of Pascal's triangle $\dbinom{n+1}{k} = \dbinom{n}{k1}+\dbinom{n}{k}$ Write out some of the sum until you see the pattern and simplify it to obtain the term on the right hand side.

Hey firstly thanks for the rapid answer I miss understood you about the second one I been told that I need to solve it by combinatorics by inventing a problem and solve with it both sides of the euquation; also about the first one when you say comaring b to 1 how should I do it cause I have no idea how to solve that thanks

Then you get $a^n = \sum \limits_{k=1}^n \dbinom{n}{k}a^k$ like for example $5^n = \sum \limits_{k=0}^n 5^k \dbinom{n}{k}$ Does that term on the right look familiar?
