This is a very challenging question I would like your help guys to solve this question.
Prove (n+1)Pn+1(x)(2n+1)xPn(x)+nPn1(x)=0 using Rodriguez's formula

The problem is in differentiating ..I really find it very difficult to differentiate..

You still haven't said what you tried. Or are you saying that, because you are "find it very difficult to differentiate", you simply haven't tried at all?

I am making a progress .. I found a formula that allowed me to differentiate (n+1) times, so now am working on finding Pn+1 and Pn1 by the Rodriguez formula , and then substituting them back in the equation..
