In this tutorial you are shown how to split an algebraic fraction containing a repeated linear factor in the denominator into partial fractions.

Example in the video

  1. Express (x2 – 3x + 4) / [(x – 1)2(x + 2)] in partial fractions

Alternative Method

The constant C was very tedious to work out. In this supplement, you are shown an alternative method of working out the constant by comparing coefficients.
