I'm doing this for homework and I can't figure out how to simplify X^4/((X1) * (X2)). Please help.

(x1)*(x2) = x^23x+2. So, we can do polynomial long division to get:
Then, we can do partial fraction decomposition on to find an equivalent expression of the form Clearing denominators gives us the equation 15x14=A(x2)+B(x1), which we can rearrange as 15x14=(A+B)x(2A+B). Then, equate the x coefficients on both sides, and the constant expressions on both sides to get the system of equations A+B=15, 14=2A+B. We can solve these to get A=1, B=16. So, Combining all this, we get  MattGuay  20091007
