Hello, Steelers72!

I don't understand the question.

The problem can be solved without Partial Fractions.

All I need to do is write the form of the partial function.

I don't have to find the numerical values.

Second, are we suppose to factor that quadratic?

. . . .

. . Then work on: . .(ugh!)

Or should we solve: .

Would it surprise you to learn that and
