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

(3x^2-4)/(x^3-4x-6)

2. Relevant equations

I guess integration by parts... But how do i set this up?

3. The attempt at a solution

The numerator is exponentially lower than the denominator, so no long division.

The denominator seems not to factor out into anything... I tried doing a perfect squares situation, by factoring x out of the first two terms, but to no avail... Am I doing something wrong?
