# How do I withdraw a (wrong) accepted answer in favor of a right comment of that answer

My answer to a question (Asymptotic expansion of $\sum\limits_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{x^{2n+1}}{n!{\sqrt{n}} }$) was accepted. But it turned out that it was wrong. A comment to my answer later gave the correct result. How can I (1) withdraw my wrong answer and (2) give the author of that comment the chance to submit the comment as an answer and thus get the upvotes and reputation he/she deserves ?

• In short: the commenter can always post an answer. You cannot delete an accepted answer unless the question owner unaccepts it. Points cannot be transferred (except you set a bounty on the question and award it to the commenter when they post their answer), but people can vote up the new correct answer. – Stefan Kohl Mar 31 '17 at 13:17
