# Another Binomial Madness

Calculus Level 4

$(1+x)^n=C_0+C_1x + C_2x^2 + \cdots + C_rx^r + \cdots + C_n x^n$

Let $$n$$ be a positive integer such that the above shows an algebraic identity such that the variables $$C_0, C_1, \ldots, C_n$$ are independent of $$x$$.

$\large \dfrac{C_0}{1} - \dfrac{C_1}{8} + \dfrac{C_2}{15} - \cdots +(-1)^n \dfrac{C_n}{7n+1}$

If the closed form of the expression above can be expressed as $\dfrac{a \cdot 7^{n+b} \cdot (n+c)!}{1\cdot8\cdot15\cdots(7n+1)} \; ,$ where $$a,b$$ and $$c$$ are non-negative integers, find $$a+b+c$$.

Clarification:
$$!$$ denotes the factorial notation. For example, $$8! = 1\times2\times3\times\cdots\times8$$.
