Quotient

Function: quotient (<p_1>, <p_2>)

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

Function: quotient (<p_1>, <p_2>, <x_1>, ..., <x_n>) Returns the polynomial <p_1> divided by the polynomial <p_2>. The arguments <x_1>, ..., <x_n> are interpreted as in ratvars.

quotient returns the first element of the two-element list returned by divide.
