Dear ajinkya

( 5x5+4x4+3x3+2x2+x+1+x-1+x-2+x-3+x-4+x-5 )2


[(5x5+4x4+3x3+2x2+x)+1+(x-1+x-2+x-3+x-4+x-5 )]2

let A =(5x5+4x4+3x3+2x2+x) 

B  =(x-1+x-2+x-3+x-4+x-5 )

so [A+1+B]2 = A2 +1 +B2 +2A+2AB +2B

clearly    A2 +B2 +2A+2B  will not contain constant term

so constant term   =  1+ 2( constant term in AB)

                                   =1 + 2[1 +2 +3+4+5]
