One fraction is 7/(9(x  3)) by the cover up rule. Subtract that from the original function, cancel x  3 from numerator and denominator of the result, and the rest is easy.

Greetings: Do you mean (4x5)/(x^33x^2)? i.e., (4x5) / [(x3)x^2]? If so, let (4x5) / [(x3)x^2] = A/(x3) + B/x + C/x^2 ==> 4x5 = Ax^2 + Bx(x3) + C(x3) ==> 4x5 = (A+B)x^2 + (C3B)x  3C. Because 4x5 = 0x^2 + 4x  5, we equate the coefficients above as follows: A+B=0, C3B=4 and 3C=5. Finally, solving leaves A=7/9, B=7/9 and C=5/3. In conclusion, (4x5)/[x^33x^2) = 7/[9(x3)]  7/(9x) + 5/(3x^2) Regards, Rich B.
