Abstract: In this note, we shall give an explicit formula for the coefficients of the expansion of given generating function, when that function has an appropriate form, the coefficients can be represented by the higher-order Daehee and Changhee polynomials and numbers of the first kind. By the classical method of comparing the coefficients of the generating function, we show some interesting identities related to the Higher-order Daehee and Changhee numbers.

First we state auxiliary theorems which are useful in investigation power series.
Let be a generating function (a power series) for a sequence , we denote the sequence of coefficients of the expansion of by, where is a fixed real nonzero number. By using the Stirling numbers of the first kind which generated by

The lines of the proof is not difficult by using binomial expansion and base change, by the classical method for obtaining the values of the Riemann zeta-function at even positive integral arguments, i.e., by comparing the coefficients of in the generating function , Eq. (11) follows.
