Hey wondering.

I think your line should be x - 6 = Ax^2 + Bx(x-2) + C(x-2) which gives:

x - 6 = Ax^2 + Bx^2 - 2Bx + Cx - 2C which has a term 2Bx instead of 2B if you are using that particular decomposition listed above. - Dec 14th 2013, 07:44 PMwonderingRe: Partial Fractions Help
Thank you. It must be time to quit doing math for the night. :)
