Integrate (3x^2-10)/(x^2-4x+4) dx using partial fractions.

2. Relevant equations

None

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried using A/(x-2) + B/(x-2)^2 but I didnt get a coeffecient of an x^2.

I've also tried using (Ax+B)/(x-2) + C/(x-2)^2

Though I honestly thought that the usual A/(x-2) + B/(x-2)^2 would work, How do I know which formula to use. I know you have to do long division if the numerator has an x to a larger value than that of the denominator. I know when you have something like: (x^2-1) or (x^3+2) in the denominator then you use the Ax+B, Cx+D formula.
