# Partial Fraction Sums

Not what you're looking for?

Express f(x) as the sum of partial fractions.

f(x)=(3x^2+10x+9)/(2x^3+8x^2+10x+4)

This is what I've done so far.

f(x)= (3x^2+10x+9)/(2x^3+8x^2+10x+4)

= (3x^2+10x+9)/((x+2)(2x+2)(x+1))

= (3x^2+10x+9)= a/(x+2)+b/(2x+2)+c/(x+1)

Giving the simultaneous equations:

3=2a+b+2c

10=4a+3b+6c

9=2a+2b+4c

If this is right so far could you show how the simultaneous equations are solved. If its not right where have I made the mistake?
