```I have made a formula that produces a polynomial expansion, and I wish to
extract the powers and coefficients into a list.

Expand[(Sum[x^i, {i, 6}])^3]
1x^3 + 3x^4 + 6x^5 + 10x^6 + 15x^7 + 21x^8 + 25x^9 + 27x^10 + 27x^11 + 25x^12
+ 21x^13 + 15x^14 + 10x^15 + 6x^16 + 3x^17 + 1x^18

How do I make a table of the powers and coefficents?
3, 1
4, 3
5, 6
6, 10
....
