Homework Help: Calculus (Partial Fractions)

Posted by Sean on Sunday, February 24, 2008 at 3:25pm.

My Calculus class just started Partial Fractions, and I understand MOST of it.

I'm having a slight problem though, when either C, or C and D come in.

I understand

A/(something) + B/(something)

But I become confused when it's either

A/(something) + B/(something) + C/(something)


A/(something) + B/(something) + (Cx + D)/(something)

Why is it that you get ONLY C, or Cx + D ?

I always get confused when it comes to that, so help would be greatly appreciated.
