proof
let x be Real; :: thesis: (f . x) - (f . (x - h)) = 0
x - h in REAL by XREAL_0:def 1;

for x being Real holds ((bdif (f,h)) . (n + 1)) . x = 0
proof
defpred S1[ Nat] means for x being Real holds ((bdif (f,h)) . (\$1 + 1)) . x = 0 ;
A4: for k being Nat st S1[k] holds
S1[k + 1]
proof
let k be Nat; :: thesis: ( S1[k] implies S1[k + 1] )
assume A5: for x being Real holds ((bdif (f,h)) . (k + 1)) . x = 0 ; :: thesis: S1[k + 1]

A8: S1[ 0 ]
proof
let x be Real; :: thesis: ((bdif (f,h)) . (0 + 1)) . x = 0
thus ((bdif (f,h)) . (0 + 1)) . x = (bD (((bdif (f,h)) . 0),h)) . x by Def7

for n being Nat holds S1[n] from NAT_1:sch 2(A8, A4);
hence for x being Real holds ((bdif (f,h)) . (n + 1)) . x = 0 ; :: thesis: verum

hence for x being Real holds ((bdif (f,h)) . (n + 1)) . x = 0 ; :: thesis: verum
