The Method of Partial Fractions

2. The polynomial x2+3x+6 is irreducible, thus the setup looks like this:


Multiplying by the least common denominator and "sorting" results in


By comparing the polynomial coefficients on both sides we obtain the requirements


The coefficients turn out to be A=2, B=-1 and C=3, so
