Folks, If I define in Mathematica a fraction of two continued fractions, in polynomials of t, is there a program which will calculate the quotient of them as a continued fraction? For example, [0, 1, t, t^2 + 1, t^2, t^2 + 2, ...]/[0, 2, t^2, t^3, t^4, t + 1, ...] I want the answer in the form [0, t, t^2, t + 1, ...], as a single continued fraction, for example. (This sample answer is just representational, and not an answer to the posed question.) Assume that the continued fractions do not repeat, and that 100 terms have been entered for each. Diana
