Could someone please explain why the following sum simplifies to the following?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As far as I can see, this sum does not correlate to the formula for incomplete gamma function as a sum. I'd appreciate any help as the incomplete gamma function is somewhat beyond the scope of my current course.

P.S. I managed to do it eventually. The key was recognising that n-k could be substituted for k as k varies from 0 to n.
