Euclidean quotient : `quo`

`quo` returns the euclidean quotient *q* of the
Euclidean division between two polynomials (decreasing power division)
If the polynomials are represented as
expressions, the variable may be specified as a third
argument.

Input :
`quo(x``^`

2+2*x +1,x)

Output :
`x+2`

Input :
`quo(y``^`

2+2*y +1,y,y)

Output :
`y+2`

In list representation, the quotient of *x*^{2} + 2*x* + 4 by *x*^{2} + *x* + 2
one can also input :
`quo([1,2,4],[1,1,2])`

Output :
`[1]`

that is to say the polynomial `1`.
