Which is correct?

    Proving - numerical analysis (separation of symbols)

    How do I prove this?

    f(x+n) = f(x+n-1) + /\f(x+n-2) + ... + /\^(n-2) f(x+1) + /\^(n-1) f(x) +
    /\^n f(x-1)

    I stumbled upon this problem as well... i can't really see how these two are equivalent without their corresponding binomial coefficients when f(x+n) = E^n f(x) = (1+/\)^n f(x) and (1+/\ )^n is expanded ^^;
