Given: AB=B and BA=A

lets break the question as :

(A+B)5 = (A+B)2 * (A+B)2 * (A+B)

            =(A2+B2+AB+BA)(A2+B2+AB+BA)(A+B)[email protected]


(Since (A+B)2= (A2+AB+BA+B2) = (A*A + AB+BA+B*A)

                      =(A*BA+AB+BA+B*AB) = ((A*B)A+AB+BA+(B*A)B)

                      =(BA+AB+BA+AB) = 2(A+B)[email protected]


Puting value of equation @2 in @1 we get :->

                      =2(A+B)*2(A+B)*(A+B) = 4(A+B)2*(A+B) = 8(A+B)(A+B)

                      =16(A+B) answer
