Quotient

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

u:expand(2*(x+2)*(x-1)*(x+2));
v:expand((1-2*x)*(x-2));
quotient(u, v);

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.

(%o1)                                true
