'x - 1' is a factor of a polynomial in the form (x^n - 1) where 'n' is a positive integer.
my guess:
This statement is always true because (x^n - 1) is a difference of square. When factored even more, (x^n - 1) = (x^n/2 - 1)(x^n/2 + 1). Therefore, (x-1) can be factor of (x^n - 1) and is always true.
