Unformatted text preview: (d) The binomial theorem shows that this polynomial is of the form x p1 + 2 px p2 + + 2 p1 p . The coefcients of x i for 0 i p2 are all divisible by p ; it is crucial that p is prime here. Also p 2 does not divide 2 p1 p (here it is crucial that p 6 = 2). Now apply Eisenstein for the prime p (of course, it is crucial that p is prime here)....
