Partial Fractions Case 1: Suppose a rational expression R ( x ) Q ( x ) has a denominator that can be rewritten as a product of distinct linear factors: R ( x ) Q ( x ) R ( x ) a 1 x b 1  a 2 x b 2 ... a n x b n Then we can rewrite the expression as a sum: R ( x ) Q ( x ) A 1 a 1 x b 1 A 2 a 2 x b 2 ... A n a n x b n Ex. 2 x 6 x 2 2 x 3 dx
