# Math Help - Partial Fraction Decomposition

1. ## Partial Fraction Decomposition

I know you gotta divide first because this is improper, but anyone know how to do tyhis?

x^2+5x / x^2+x+9
thanksa

2. $\frac{x^2+5x}{x^2+x+9}=\frac{(x^2+x+9)+(4x-9)}{x^2+x+9}=1+\frac{4x-9}{x^2+x+9}$

To learn how to do the division, try here.

Note: Since the denominator is not factorable, you do not need to do the partial-fraction decomposition.
