[4 marks] Given a polynomial p ( x ), let p ( i ) ( x ) denote its i th derivative. Let p ( x ) be a polynomial of degree n . Prove that B = p ( x ) , p (1) ( x ) , . . . , p ( n ) ( x ) is a basis for P n . Suppose p ( x ) = x n . Let S = x n , x n1 , . . . , x, 1 denote the standard basis for P n . Find the changeofcoordinates matrices from B to S and from S to B ....
