my work:

(n+1)!/((n+1)(n-1)!)

=1/(n-1)?

Thanks in advance.

(n+1)!/(n-1)!

= (n+1)(n)(n-1)!/((n+1)(n-1)!

= n

**Reiny**, Sunday, March 29, 2009 at 9:28pmYou know what?

I looked at "my work" and assumed that was the starting question.

so here it goes once more

(n+1)!/(n-1)!

= (n+1)(n)(n-1)!/n-1)!

= n(n+1)

sorry

I should be more careful when reading questions.
