Newbie question: equations with sums.

Hello.

FullSimplify[\!\(
\*UnderoverscriptBox[\(\[Sum]\), \(i = 0\), \(\(-1\) + n\)]i\ f[
     i]\) == \!\(
\*UnderoverscriptBox[\(\[Sum]\), \(k = 0\), \(\(-1\) + n\)]k\ f[k]\)]

Evaluates to:

\!\(
\*UnderoverscriptBox[\(\[Sum]\), \(i = 0\), \(\(-1\) + n\)]i\ f[
    i]\) == \!\(
\*UnderoverscriptBox[\(\[Sum]\), \(k = 0\), \(\(-1\) + n\)]k\ f[k]\)

Why doesn't it evaluate to true? Is there a way to make the system
solve this kind of equations?
