This paper shows that the coefficient of x in the right hand side of the equation is an algebraic relation in terms of z. The exponent of z represents the crank of partitions of a positive integral value of n and also shows that the sum of weights of corresponding partitions of n is the sum of ordinary partitions of n and it is equal to the number of partitions of n with crank m. This paper shows how to prove the Theorem “The number of partitions π of n with crank C(π)=m is M(m,n) for all n>1.”
