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.

divide(x^4+7*x^3+2*x^2-3*x-5,3*x^2-x+1);

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.
