### 8-5 Partial Fractions

Miss Battaglia

AP Calculus

Case 1: Denominator contains only linear factors
• Factor the denominator
• Break up the fraction on the right into a sum of fractions, where each factor of the denominator in Step 1 becomes the denominator of a separate fraction. Then put unknowns in the numerator of each fraction.
• Multiply both sides of this equation by the denominator of the left side.
• Take the roots of the linear factors and plug them –one at a time-into x in the equation from Step 3, and solve for unknowns.
• Plug these results into the A and B in the equation from Step 2.
• Split up the original integral into the partial fractions from Step 5 and you’re home free!
• Factor the denominator
• Break up the fraction into a sum of “partial fractions”
• Multiply both sides of this equation by the left-side denominator.
• Take the roots of the linear factors and plug them-one at a time- into x in the equation from Step 3, and then solve.
• Plug into Step 3 equation the known values of A and B and any two values for x not used in Step 4 to get a system of two equations in C and D.
• Solve the system of equations.
• Split up the original integral and integrate.
