Made some heavy changes to the dense polynomial package to get it working. A bit frustrating, but this was great to get back into the groove. I only implemented division for dense polynomials, maybe I’ll go back and do sparse polynomials in the future.

```(define (install-dense-polynomial-package)
(if (same-variable? (variable p1) (variable p2))
(make-poly (variable p1)
(term-list p2)))
(error "Polys not in same var -- ADD-POLY"
(list p1 p2))))
(define (mul-poly p1 p2)
(if (same-variable? (variable p1) (variable p2))
(make-poly (variable p1)
(mul-terms (term-list p1)
(term-list p2)))
(error "Polys not in same var -- MUL-POLY"
(list p1 p2))))

(define (div-poly p1 p2)
(if (same-variable? (variable p1) (variable p2))
(make-poly (variable p1)
(div-terms (term-list p1)
(term-list p2)))
(error "Polys not in same var -- DIV-POLY"
(list p1 p2))))
