the problem is to prove that -∫(-1 to 1) u^(n-1)(x) u^(n+1)(x)dx = (-1)^n ∫(-1 to 1)u(x)u^(2n)(x)dx

here (n-1),(n+1),(2n) are n th derivatives and u(x) = (x²-1)^n

plz help me to prove above problem...

Hi;

You should latex these so they are readable.

This is a good online latex creator. It uses pull down menus and produces perfect latex every time.

That is the LHS of your question. Refresh my memory, which polynomials are u(x)?

Hi;

So the whole question looks like this:
