I need steps not just answers

**Ryan**, Sunday, October 12, 2008 at 4:23pmFirst, I assume you mean (9-9x)/(x^2-9)?

**Damon**, Sunday, October 12, 2008 at 4:47pmMaking the same assumption as Ryan

9[(1-x)]/(x-3)(x+3)=9[a/(x-3)+b/(x+3)]

a(x+3) + b(x-3) = 1-x

a+b=-1

3a-3b=1

solve and get a =-1/3, b=-2/3

so

9 [(-1/3)/(x-3) -(2/3)/(x+3)]

= -3/(x-3) -6/(x+3)

**Ryan**, Sunday, October 12, 2008 at 4:53pmIf my assumption is true, you could simply use 9/(x^2-9) + -9x/(x^2+9), as these are both rational expressions, I think.
