(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

find the Laurent series for

[tex]\frac{z+2}{z^{5}-8z^{2}}[/tex] in 2<|z|<[tex]\infty[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Well, I factored out z[tex]^{5}[/tex] in the denominator, which left me with a geometric sum (since |z|>2). I've come up with [tex]\frac{z+2}{z^{5}}[/tex][tex]\sum[/tex][tex]\frac{8}{z^{3}}[/tex][tex]^{n}[/tex]

I'm not sure if I'm going in the right direction, but if I am, could someone please give me a hint at what to look at next.
