Transformation problem.

  1. Jan 10, 2006 #1
    Find a & b for the following transformation

    1/(z+a) = (a/z) + [b/(1-z)]

    I am kind of lost as to where to start on this and google didn't help much typing in math transformations. I know how to do laplace transforms and such but not really sure what they are asking here and we aren't to Laplace yet.

    Why don't you just set z to two different values then solve the resulting pair of equations for a and b?
