Let's say that I have a polynomial like this:
a+b+c
Is there any way that I can get Mathematica to transform it to:
a*(1+b/a+c/a)

I found such a manipulation on polynomials very common when deducing equations by hand; however, I have been trying all day and still can not figure out how to make Mathematica do this automatically. Is there any way that one can get Mathematica to do this?
