Question

When the degree of a polynomial ƒ(x) is less than the degree of a polynomial g(x), how do you write ƒ(x)/g(x) as a sum of partial fractions if g(x)

a. is a product of distinct linear factors?

b. consists of a repeated linear factor? a. contains an irreducible quadratic factor? What do you do if the degree of ƒ is not less than the degree of g?
