Homework Help: calculus

Posted by Anonymous on Monday, June 6, 2011 at 8:41pm.

When you are decomposing fractions into constants

EX:

1/(x-1)(x-2)^2 = A/(x-1) + B/(x-2) + C/(x-2)^2

Why do you have to repeat (x-2), instead of just putting B/(x-2)^2?

I know how to solve these types of problems, but I don't understand it conceptually.
