**Abstract.**In this paper, we extend the theory of generalized difference operator of the -th kind,
, where 's are real and present the discrete version of Leibnitz Theorem and Newton's Formula with reference to
. Using the Stirling numbers of the second kind 's we establish a formula for the sum of the general partial sums of consecutive terms of an arithmetic progression and sum of the general partial sums of an arithmetico-geometric progression in number theory. Suitable examples are provided to illustrate the main results.
