Calculus  Partial Fractions
posted by David on .
I've set a problem up, something like this.
s^4: A+D=0
s^3: 2A+B3D+E=0
s^2: 2AB+C+3D3E=0
s^1: 2A+BD+3E=4
s^0: A+CE=4

I'm sorry. I forgot to say that I don't know how to solve for A, B, C, D, and E... Help there would be appreciated.

I would let my calculator do the gaussian reduction.

It's easier to substitute for s the values that make the denominators zero and then demand equalty. You then get simpler equations than comparing the coefficients of equal powers of s on both sides.

Would anybody mind showing it out? I tried what Count Iblis said, but it didn't really work out well...
