I'll let you the case . Now, we'll suposse that the proposition is true for some poyinomial of degree . We have to prove that this proposition is true for . Let be a polynomial of degree .

Integrating by parts

But the proposition is true for the polynomial of degree k, then:

And now, conclude (Wink)
