Could anyone please point me in the direction on how to proof ? I'm having a problem with this as the factorial of a negative integer is infinit. Thanks in advance!

The starting point in this is to generalize the definition of C(x, k) to be . With this definition, x can be any real number, not necessarily an integer. k must be a non-negative integer. Now let x = -n and see what you get.

I just missed that one detail about the generalization of the binomial coëfficiënt.
