Hello,

I am having problems solving the following question:

Let the random variable X have a Poisson distribution with parameter [lambda]. Show that for every n>=1 one has E(X^n) = [lambda]E[(X +1)^(n-1)]: Note that, using this formula, we can nd E(X);E(X2), . . .recursively.

I have no idea what to do... Please help

-Thanks
