| | So, once we’ve determined that **partial** **fractions** can be done we factor the denominator as completely as possible. Then for each factor in the denominator we can use the following table to determine the term(s) we pick up in the **partial** **fraction** decomposition. |

| | To this point we’ve only looked at rational expressions where the degree of the numerator was strictly less that the degree of the denominator. Of course not all rational expressions will fit into this form and so we need to take a look at a couple of examples where this isn’t the case. |

| | So, in this case the degree of the numerator is 4 and the degree of the numerator is 3. Therefore, **partial** **fractions** can’t be done on this rational expression. |
