Method of fraction decomposition

This process of taking a rational expression and decomposing it into simpler rational expressions that we can add or subtract to get the original rational expression is called partial fraction decomposition. Many integrals involving rational expressions can be done if we first do partial fractions on the integrand.

So, let's do a quick review of partial fractions. We'll start with a rational expression in the ...
