#### Solution

L.H.S. = (n + 1) ""^"n""P"_"r"

= ("n" + 1) xx ("n!")/(("n" - "r")!)

= (("n" + 1)!)/(("n" - "r")!) .....(I)

= R.H.S. = ("n" - "r" + 1) ""^(("n" + 1))"P"_"r"

= ("n" - "r" + 1) xx (("n" + 1)!)/(("n" - "r" + 1)!)

= (("n" - "r" + 1)("n" + 1)!)/(("n" - "r" + 1)("n" - "r")!)

= (("n" + 1)!)/(("n" - "r")!) .....(II)
From (I) and (II), L.H.S. = R.H.S.
∴ (n + 1)""^"n""P"_"r"  = ("n" - "r" + 1) ""^(("n" + 1))"P"_"r"
