P.S, the steps he gave us were these:

1For f(x)=p(x)/q(x)

1. if degree P >= degree Q, divide it out.

2. Factor the denominator completely

3. Write the quotient as a sum.

4. Set the original fraction equal to the sum of the fraction.

5. Clear the equation of fractions.

6. Combine like terms.

7. Equate coefficients of like powers of X (? How do I do this?)

8. Solve for coefficients
