**Partial Fractions**

- Partial Fractions are a way of ‘breaking apart’ fractions with polynomials in them
- Some types of rational functions p(x)/q(x) can be decomposed into Partial Fractions
- If the numerator is of a higher (or equal) degree than the denominator, then algebraic long division should be used first to obtain a proper rational function
- In exams q(x) can be either a quadratic or cubic which can be factorised easily into one of three types – Linear Factors, Repeated Linear Factor or Irreducible Factor.

An example of each of the three types is shown below.

Example One – Distinct Linear Factors

Example Two – Repeated Linear Factor

If the denominator contains a repeated linear factor, more than one partial fraction must be included for this factor, as illustrated in the example below.

Example Three – Irreducible Factor
