Yes, factoring the denominator end result is decomposition of the fraction. We are finding the LCM and then break apart the numerator.

Hopfully that helps your understanding better than mine.. lol

Thanks

I am lost on a couple problems, can anyone help. We are working on Partial Fraction Decomposition, and these are two problems I am stuck on. Problem 1 x^2-2x / x^4+x^3+16x^2+9x+63 Problem 2 2 / x^4+4x^3+11x^2-3x+9 we were working on breaking down the denom, and using the A+B+C method to solve. Any h...
