Hi When I try to decompose: (x + 1) / ((x + 2)^2) I end up with: x + 1 = A(x + 2)^2 + B(x + 2) this ends up with A = 1/2, B = - 1/2, so the answer seemingly should be: 1/2(x + 2) - 1/2(x + 2)^2 This doesn't make sense however as the result when these terms are added back is (x + 1) / 2 (x + 2)^2 rat...
