$\bullet$ Partial fraction decomposition expresses a rational function $\frac{f(x)}{g(x)}$, where $f(x)$ and $g(x)$ are polynomials in $x$, as a sum of simpler fractions.

$\bullet$Partial fraction decomposition only applies to proper fractions in which the degree of the numerator is less than that of the denominator.
