(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The question asks me to express the integrand in partial fractions to evaluate the integral

[tex] \int \frac{13x-4}{6x^{2} -x -2} dx [/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Well 6x² -x - 2 doesn't factorise (or I cant see it factorised).

So I tried doing long polynomial division and I got something that looked nothing like what the answer is. How should I begin to tackle this problem?

Thanks

Thomas
