Hello. I've posted an imageshack link to this question because I haven't figured out how to enter in math fonts.

In this question q and d are constants representing charge and the distance between charges, but z is a variable. I've been trying to use partial fractions after simplifying the equation. I wound up with a constant multiplied by z/[(4z^2-d^2)^2], and using partial fractions I would up with z = (Az + B)(4z^2 - d^2) + Cz + E. Trying to solve for that has lead me nowhere though. Am I at least going in the right direction, or is there some other way to solve this that I'm entirely missing?
