Calculus - Partial Fractions

I've set a problem up, something like this.

s^4: A+D=0
s^3: -2A+B-3D+E=0
s^2: 2A-B+C+3D-3E=0
s^1: -2A+B-D+3E=4
s^0: A+C-E=4

  3. 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.

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