Let f be a transcendental meromorphic function on the complex plane , let a be a non-zero finite complex number and let n and k be two positive integers. In this paper, we prove that if n≥k+1, then assumes each value b infinitely often. Also, the related normal criterion for families of meromorphic functions is given. Our results generalize the related results of Fang and Zalcman.
