    Probability solve the expression P(2n+4,3) = 2/3P(n+4,4) for n

    i just want to confirm if my anser is right.... this is the problem: solve the expression for n Є N P(2n + 4, 3) = 2/3P(n+4, 4) this is my work: (2n +4)!/(n-3)! = (2/3(n+4)!)/(n-4)! -2(n-2)!/(n-3)! = -2/3(n-4)!/(n-4)! -2/(n-3)! = -2/3 -2 = -2/3(n-3) -2 = -2n/3 +6/3 -2 = -2n/3...
