i am trying to symbolically determine the inverse of a polynomial in B.

c = c0 + c1*B^1 + c2*B^2 + c3*B^3 + c4*B^4;

I wish to determine 1/c

I have tried polynomialquotient(1,c,B) and it returns 0, and polynomialremainder(1,c,B) returns 1.

I also tried d=1/c
however, no matter how i try to expand, simplify it always leaves the numerator as 1. I would like to expand it out essentially performing long-division. Can anybody help?
