It says in my book that(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a any function can be decomposed to some sum of strictly proper rational functions where the denominator of each rational function is either consist of linear functions, irreducible quadratic functions.

"Any proper rational function can be expressed as a sum of simpler rational functions whose den's are either linear functions or irreducible quadratic functions." [here's the exact wording]

I was thinking what happens when the denominator has a irreducible 4th degree factor?
