I have an equation of the following form:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] \frac {dz}{z^2 - z} [/tex]

Of course, I factor this into:

[tex] (z + \sqrt{z})(z - \sqrt{z}) [/tex]

then,

[tex]

\frac{A}{z + \sqrt{z}} + \frac{B}{z - \sqrt{z}}

[/tex]

of course cross multiply the denominators to get:

[tex] A(z - \sqrt{z}) + B(z + \sqrt{z}) = 1 [/tex]

But then what? do I equate the z terms to 1 and the square root terms to 0?
