(Roots of unity )
xn-1=(x-1)p(x) where p(x) is a polynomial of degree n-1
where p(x) is a0+a1x+...+an-1xn-1. I need to solve for the coefficients ai
My attempt at solving for coefficients:
where I get a0=1 and an-1=1 
I do not know if this is right. I don't think I solved for all the coefficients. Please help me.

one easy way is tot simply divide x^n – 1 by x – 1 using the ususal division algorithm and then find out the coeffs. however, from the sum of GP formula, we know that 
1+x+x^2+x^3+....+x^(n–1)= 1*(x^n – 1)/(x – 1)
or xn-1=(x-1)(1+x+x^2+x^3+....+x^(n–1))
hence we conclude that all the coefficients are equal to 1.
