This is throwing me through so many loops.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the equation 1/(x^3 + xa^2).

I can not for the life of me decompose this equation.

I use 1(x^3 + xa^2) = A/x + (Bx + C)/(v^2+a^2)

I can get A=1/a^2, but from there progress stops.

All examples on the internet and books only have one variable.

What do I do?
