.. oy, i'm just not sure how to find 3 constants!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is my problem:

5x^2-4/(x-2)(x+2)(x-1) = A/(x-2)+B/(x+2)+C/(x-1)

.. i got a bit of it done, but it's all wrong

OH! and what am i supposed to do if the numerator of the first equation does not have any sort of variable with it??

my next problem:

3/r^2-4r-5 = A/r-5 + B/r+1

Well, any help would be much appreciated ^^ :shy:
