The generalized version is proved by defining a third function of a new variable t out of the original two functions. That version is also known as Cauchy's version and is useful to proving L'Hospital's Rule. Gauss's version uses an analytic function in an open ball shifted by a factor of r times e to the `i' theta integrated from zero to 2 Pi and then divided by 2 Pi.
