Homework Help: Calc II

Posted by Jenna on Sunday, December 6, 2009 at 10:08pm.

Perform long division on the integrand, write the proper fraction as a sum of partial fractions, and evaluate the integral:
(integral of) 2y^4dy/y^3 - y^2 + y - 1
After long divison I get:
(integral of)2ydy + 2(integral of)dy + (integral of) 2/y^3 - y^2 + y - 1
I keep getting stuck here. I can't write this as a sum of partial fractions because I can't figure out how to rearrange the denominator so that I CAN write it as a sum o partial fractions. Any ideas?
