$$\sum {| n \rangle \langle n |} = 1\\

\sum {| n \rangle \langle n | \psi \rangle} = | \psi \rangle$$

This represents the expansion of ##|\psi\rangle## into a linear combination of orthonormal basis states ##|n\rangle##. The ##\langle n | \psi \rangle## are the coefficients of the expansion. In the position representation we usually write this as something like

$$\psi(x) = \sum {c_n \psi_n(x)}$$
