Again, I don't really know whether this proof is known or not but I'm trying the chance again hhh. Ok so Fermat's little theorem says: a^p = a [p], for p prime and a any integer. We will use the following property: if p is prime, p is a divisor of the C(p,j) for j>0 and j<p. with this identity for every k and i integers: (ki)^p = (ki1+1)^p=(k(i+1))^p +1 +sum_of_binomial coefficients (that have p as divisor as stated above) we'll have then (ki)^p  (k(i+1))^p = 1 [p] by summing up this formula from i=0 to i =k1, we will have: k^p = k [p] I hope it's not rubbish writing.
