Someone teach me how to write equations using the editor here...

This is part of an integration question

need partial fractions of 1/(x^2)(x-4)

2. Relevant equations

-nil-

3. The attempt at a solution

1/(x^2)(x-4)=(Ax+B)/(x^2)+C(x-4)

Put x=0 therefore B=-1/4

put x=4 therefore C= 1/16

Put x=1 therefore A=-1/16

1/(x^2)(x-4)=(-1/16)(x+4)/x^2 +1/16(x-4)

I get a different result on Mathematica, someone help
