## Homework Statement

Simplify: 1/k [(k-1) x_n+ x^k/(x_n^(k-1) )]- 1/k [(k-1)x+ x^k/x^(k-1) ] where e_n = x_n - x

x_n means x subscript n

e_n means e subscript n

It might be easier to look at the picture I typed out in MS Word.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I only got [(k-1)/k]e_n + x^k/k (1/x_n^(k-1) - 1/x^(k-1))

Please help!
