Divide

Function: divide (<p_1>, <p_2>, <x_1>, ..., <x_n>) computes the quotient and remainder of the polynomial <p_1> divided by the polynomial <p_2>, in a main polynomial variable, <x_n>. The other variables are as in the ratvars function. The result is a list whose first element is the quotient and whose second element is the remainder.

f:x^4+x^3-x-1;
g:diff(f,x);
p0:f;
p1:g;
a:divide(p0,p1,x);
p2:-a[2];
a:divide(p1,p2,x);
p3:-a[2];
a:divide(p2,p3,x);
p4:-a[2];

Examples:

          (%i1) divide (x + y, x - y, x);
          (%o1)                       [1, 2 y]
          (%i2) divide (x + y, x - y);
          (%o2)                      [- 1, 2 x]

Note that y is the main variable in the second example.

There are also some inexact matches for divide. Try ?? divide to see them.

(%o1)                                true
(%i2)
