Question

There are two ways to find the unknown coefficients of partial fraction decomposition. The second method involves using "nice" values of x that are actually zeros of the denominator. So, the rational function we want to decompose is undefined for them, nevertheless, this method works, why?

Answer #1

We use zeros of the denominator after getting rid of denominators

so, there won't be any denominator on any side

so, it can not be undefined

**For example:**

We use zeros of denominators after we cancel denominator both sides

so, we can multiply both sides (x-1)(x+1)

now, we can choose zeros of the denominator

It won't be undefined because there is no denominator now

**First zero:**

**Second zero:**

now, we can plug it back

1-(Partial Fraction Decomposition Revisited) Consider the
rational function 1/(1-x)(1-2x)
(a) Find power series expansions separately for 1/(1 − x) and
1/(1 − 2x).
(b) Multiply these two power series expansions together to get a
power series ex-pansion for
1 (1−x)(1−2x)
(This involves doing an infinite amount of distributing and
combining coeffi-cients, but you should be able to figure out the
pattern here.)
c) Separate the power series in terms of power series for A/(1 −
x) and B/(1 − 2x)...

Strings
The example program below, with a few notes following, shows how
strings work in C++.
Example 1:
#include <iostream> using namespace std; int main()
{
string s="eggplant";
string t="okra";
cout<<s[2]<<endl;
cout<< s.length()<<endl; //prints 8
cout<<s.substr(1,4)<<endl; //prints ggpl...kind of
like a slice, but the second num is the length of the
piece
cout<<s+t<<endl; //concatenates: prints eggplantokra
cout<<s+"a"<<endl;
cout<<s.append("a")<<endl; //prints eggplanta: see
Note 1 below
//cout<<s.append(t[1])<<endl; //an error; see
Note 1
cout<<s.append(t.substr(1,1))<<endl; //prints
eggplantak; see Note 1
cout<<s.find("gg")<<endl;
if (s.find("gg")!=-1)
cout<<"found...

The Business Case for Agility
“The battle is not always to the strongest, nor the
race to the swiftest, but that’s the way to bet
’em!” —C. Morgan Cofer
In This Chapter
This chapter discusses the business case for Agility,
presenting six benefits for teams and the enterprise. It also
describes a financial model that shows why incremental development
works.
Takeaways
Agility is not just about the team. There are
product-management, project-management, and technical issues beyond
the team’s control. Lean-Agile provides...

It had been a busy day for Marsha Chamberland. She had spent
most of it cleaning and running errands in prepara- tion for her
brother-in-law Ed’s return, and now she was preparing a quick
dinner for her family. Ed, an industry official whose job it was to
decide whether or not new products needed premarket approval by the
U.S. Food and Drug Administration, had spent the last two weeks in
Tennessee expressing his views on genetic engineering in food. He...

In 1991, Progressive Insurance, an automobile insurer based in
Mayfield Village, Ohio, had approximately $1.3 billion in sales. By
2002, that figure had grown to $9.5 billion. What fashionable
strategies did Progressive employ to achieve sevenfold growth in
just over a decade? Was it positioned in a high-growth industry?
Hardly. Auto insurance is a mature, 100-year-old industry...
