(i) By Wilson's Theorem: But note that and so on... Thus: Now if then Thus: (iii) This shows that you have at least 2 solutions if ( a²=(-a)² )
(Let be odd). Define as . This polynomial has degree . But every solves this polynomial. Thus, has value of zero for distinct values, and so it must be a zero polynomial. So let and we get:
