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"`
