see, 2009 is 2(mod 3).

and we raise it to an odd power,

2(mod 3) remains the same.

lemma -

2^(2n-1) is 2(mod 3) for all natural numbers , n.

4^n - 2 ,

(3+1)^n - 2.

(multiple of 3) - 1.

which is 2(mod 3). :)

so x = w^(power that is 2(mod3)).

x = w^2.

we want 1 + x + x^3 = 1 + w^2 + w^6 = 2 + w^2 = 1 + 1 + w + w^2 - w = 1 - w.

not sure. ;(
