Partial Fractions (Section 7.4) The method of partial fractions is used to evaluate integrals of the form Z p ( x ) q ( x ) dx where p ( x ) and q ( x ) are polynomials. Polynomial Long Division Review: Example 0.1. x 2 + 5 x + 9 Rule 1: Evaluating Z p ( x ) q ( x ) where q ( x ) is the product of linear factors, none of which is repeated, so q ( x ) = ( a 1 x + b 1 )( a 2 x + b 2 ) ... ( a n x + b n ): 1. If the degree of p ( x ) is greater than the degree of q ( x ), long divide first. 2. Write p ( x ) q ( x ) = A 1 a 1 x + b 1 + A 2 a 2 x + b 2 + ... + A n a n x + b n 3. Clear denominators from both sides. 4. Use coefficient matching to set up a system of n equations with n unknowns. 5. Use your favorite method to solve the system of equations.
