sumande,

thanks. i was trying to factor and do all sorts of weirdness; essentially we just replace each p with p/p-1

thats not so tough

i ended up with:

(p/p-1)# = p/p(1-(1/p))# = 1/(1-1/p)# 1- 1/(p/p-1) = -1/p

P## = [ P#/(P#-1) ] ....X

P# = P/(P-1) -----A
So, P# - 1 = P/(P-1) - 1 = P - P + 1/(P-1)
P#-1 = 1/(P-1) .....B

Plugging A & B in X.

P## = [P/(P-1)] / [1/(P-1)]

= P/(P-1) * (P-1)

= P.

C.
