# Write out the form of the partial fraction decomposition of the function (as in Example 7). Do not determine the numerical values of the coefficients.(a) x 6 x 2 − 4 (b) x 4 ( x 2 − x + 1 ) ( x 2 + 2 ) 2

To determine

a) To decompose the function as partial fractions x6x24

Explanation

Calculation: Given x6x24

Since the degree of the numerator is greater than the degree of denominator, we perform the long division, this enables to write

Therefore x6=(x24)(x4+4x2+16)+64

x6x24=(x24)(x4+4x2+16)+64x24=(x24)(x4+4x2+16)x24+64x24=(x4+
