(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If <∅| is normalized, show that:

<∅|∅>=1=<∅|n><n|∅>

(where ∅ is a non-eigenfunction wave function composed of Ʃc(n)ψ(n).

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I can show that <∅|∅>=Ʃc*(n)c(n) (=1). But the next part of the question asks to use your proof to show Ʃc*(n)c(n)=1 so that's not the way it is supposed to be done. I feel like I'm missing something very simple.
