Abstract
In this work, we present a generic formula for the polynomial solution families of the wellknown differential equation of hypergeometric type sigma(x) y(n)''(x)+tau(x)y(n)'(x)lambda(n)y(n)(x)=0 and show that all the three classical orthogonal polynomial families as well as three finite orthogonal polynomial families, extracted from this equation, can be identified as special cases of this derived polynomial sequence. Some general properties of this sequence are also given.
