Have you mistyped something? Your conditions mean that N = k/D where k and D are already polynomials. You could choose B = k and A = D, or multiply both k and D by any polynomial you liked.
For example, if k = 1 and D = x + 1 so N = 1  x + x^2  x^3 + .... then you could have B = 1, A = x + 1, or B = x^2  7, A = (x + 1)(x^2  7), etc. etc.
Perhaps you meant something different.
