# Polynomial division command

hello I found this post from sage documents for division of two polynomials

```
def division(dividend, divisor) :
print 'quotient: ', (dividend._maxima_().divide(divisor).sage())[0]
print 'remainder: ', (dividend._maxima_().divide(divisor).sage())[1]
```

but could you please explain a little bit about this post? such as what is divided.maxima_() ?

Perhaps [this](http://199.219.158.222/home/pub/0/) is the post you mention.
