Okay, so I just found out about the polynom package, and needless to say it is great. But I am having some issues with it. I am trying to do 1/(x+1), basically to show the power series expansion of it. I thought that possibly using the stage parameter would solve this problem, but no luck there. Any suggestions other than typing all of it out by hand?

I don't think the package can even compute divisions f/g when the degree of f is less than the degree of g. – egreg Oct 13 '12 at 17:33
I guess that would make sense, because why else would you be doing polynomial division, but basically I was trying to use it for a power series expansion thing. – MZimmerman6 Oct 13 '12 at 18:41
You could try a symbolic algebra package for this. Maxima, for example, does a pretty good job at exporting to LaTeX. – vonbrand Dec 5 '12 at 0:11
