Given: 
T= 56/9.      &      T4 = 70/3
Binomial coefficient of T3 = binomial coefficient of  T6
nC2 = nC5
 On solving this equation we get
(n-2)(n-3)(n-4)=60
From here we get only one real and integral solution that is
n=7.  Ans
Now we will operate for the given first condition that is
T3= 56/9
nC2a(n-2) b2= 56/9
Since we found n = 7
7*6*a5b2/2 = 56/9
a5b2 =8/27............….......1st eqn
 T47C3a4b3 = 70/3
7*6*5 a4b3/6= 70/3
a4b3 = 2/3.............….........2nd eqn
 from equation 1 and 2 we get
a/b=4/9.............................3rd eqn
On solving 1st, 2nd and 3rd equation
We get
a = 2/3.       &         b = 3/2.    And
