Partial Fractions 2 (Section 7.4) Integrating Z p ( x ) q ( x ) : If the degree of p ( x ) is greater than the degree of q ( x ), start by using polynomial long division. Then use the method of partial fractions on the remainder. Rule 1: If the denominator of p ( x ) q ( x ) is the product of linear factors, none of which are repeated, that is, q ( x ) = ( a 1 x + b 1 )( a 2 x + b 2 ) ... ( a n x + b n ), then p ( x ) q ( x ) = A 1 a 1 x + b 1 + A 2 a 2 xb 2 + ... + A n a n x + b n Rule 2: If the denominator is the product of linear factors, some of which are repeated, the repeated factor ( ax + b ) r contributes A 1 ax + b + A 2 ( ax + b ) 2 + A 3 ( ax + b ) 3 + ... + A r ( ax + b ) r The remaining factors contribute terms using the appropriate rules.
