For the factorial (2n+1)!, I thought the previous term is going to be (2(n-1)+1), which is equal to (2n-1).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thus (2n+1)!= (2n+1)(2n-1)!

However, in the textbook, they have it as .

[tex] a_n= \frac{(2n-1)!}{(2n+1)!}=\frac{(2n-1)!}{(2n+1)(2n)(2n-1)!}[/tex]

Are they wrong or I am wrong? Thanks!
