Would someone be kind enough to show the working for expressing the following in partial fractions:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

\frac{x^2}{(x-1)(x+1)}

[/tex]

I believe the answer is

[tex]\frac{x^2}{(x-1)(x+1)} \equiv 1 + \frac{1}{2(x-1)} - \frac{1}{2(x+1)}[/tex]

Thanks in advance,

Sammon Jnr
