It should be $-5120$.

use binomial

$(x^3) \underbrace{(1+2x)^{-2}}$

find coefficient of  $(x^9)$ from 2nd term

 it will be : $\frac{n(n-1)(n-2)(n-3)(n-4)(n-5)(n-6)(n-7)(n-8) \times (2x)^{9}}{9!}$

n = -2 here  

$\frac{-2(-3)(-4)(-5)(-6)(-7)(-8)(-9)(-10) \times (2x)^{9}}{9!}$

=$- \frac{2(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)(8)(9)(10) \times (2x)^{9}}{9\times 8!}$

= $10(-1) \times 512 x^{9} = -5120$

but here n = 2 na

why n=2   , i took  denominator above so it becomes -2
