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 :
Input :
quo(y^2+2*y +1,y,y)
Output :
In list representation, the quotient of x2 + 2x + 4 by x2 + x + 2 one can also input :
Output :
that is to say the polynomial 1.
