In this lesson, you will learn how to break down a fraction into partial fractions using a lengthy and involved method. The first step is to factor the denominator, and then isolate the x's to solve a system of two equations with two variables using elimination. Once you have those values, you can plug them back in to get the partial fractions. While this process is time-consuming, it is an important skill for calculus.
