This Demonstration provides simple exercises in partial fraction decomposition. Two methods are used to determine the coefficients in the decomposition. The first consists of equating coefficients of powers of on the left and right sides of the corresponding equation. In the second method, the roots of the denominator are substituted for . In the case of multiple roots, some other value should be substituted.
