Hint: First of all factorise the denominator of the given expression that is \[12{{x}^{2}}-11x-15\] in its linear factors. Then write the numerator that is 46 + 13x in terms of these linear factors of the denominator.

Here, we have to resolve the following expression into partial fractions.

Let us consider the given expression as

\[D=\dfrac{46+13x}{12{{x}^{2}}-11x-15}\]

Let us consider, \[A=46+13x\]

And \[B=12{{x}^{2}}-11x-15\]

Therefore, \[D=\dfrac{A}{B}....\left( i \right)\]

First of all, we will factorize B.

In B, we can write \[11x=20x-9x\]

Therefore, we get

\[B=12{{x}^{2}}-\left( 20x-9x \right)-15\]

\[\Rightarrow B=12{{x}^{2}}-20x+9x-15\]

Or, \[B=\left( 12{{x}^{2}}-20x \right)+\left( 9x-15 \right)\]

By taking 4x common from \[\left( 12{{x}^{2}}-20x \right)\] and 3 common from \[\left( 9x-15 \right)\], we get

\[\Rightarrow B=4x\left( 3x-5 \right)+3\left( 3x-5 \right)\]

By taking \[\left( 3x-5 \right)\] common, we get,

\[B=\left( 3x-5 \right).\left( 4x+3 \right)\]

By putting the values of A and B in equation (i), we get

\[D=\dfrac{A}{B}=\dfrac{46+13x}{\left( 3x-5 \right).\left( 4x+3 \right)}\]

Now, to resolve D into partial fractions, let us consider,

\[D=\dfrac{P}{\left( 3x-5 \right)}+\dfrac{Q}{\left( 4x+3 \right)}.....\left( ii \right)\]

Or, \[D=\dfrac{46+13x}{\left( 3x-5 \right).\left( 4x+3 \right)}=\dfrac{P}{\left( 3x-5 \right)}+\dfrac{Q}{\left( 4x+3 \right)}\]

Now, we will solve for P and Q to find the partial fractions.

By simplifying RHS, we get

\[\dfrac{46+13x}{\left( 3x-5 \right).\left( 4x+3 \right)}=\dfrac{P\left( 4x+3 \right)+Q\left( 3x-5 \right)}{\left( 3x-5 \right)\left( 4x+3 \right)}\]

By cancelling the like terms from both sides, we get

\[46+13x=P\left( 4x+3 \right)+Q\left( 3x-5 \right)\]

By simplifying the above equation, we get

\[46+13x=4Px+3P+3Qx-5Q\]

We can write it as,

\[46+13x=\left( 4P+3Q \right)x+\left( 3P-5Q \right)\]

By equating the coefficient of x and constant terms from LHS and RHS, we get

\[4P+3Q=13....\left( iii \right)\]

And, \[3P-5Q=46....\left( iv \right)\]

Now, we will multiply equation (iii) by 3 and equation (iv) by 4.

We get,

\[12P+9Q=39....\left( v \right)\]

\[12P-20Q=184....\left( vi \right)\]

By subtracting equation (v) from equation (vi), we get,

\[\left( 12P-20Q \right)-\left( 12P+9Q \right)=184-39\]

\[\Rightarrow -20Q-9Q=145\]

\[\Rightarrow -29Q=145\]

Or, \[Q=\dfrac{145}{-29}\]

Therefore, we get

\[Q=-5\]

By putting the values of Q in equation (iii),

We get,

\[4P+3\left( -5 \right)=13\]

\[\Rightarrow 4P-15=13\]

\[\Rightarrow 4P=13+15\]

\[\Rightarrow 4P=28\]

\[\Rightarrow P=\dfrac{28}{4}\]

Therefore, we get P = 7.

By putting the values of P and Q in equation (ii). We get,

\[D=\dfrac{7}{\left( 3x-5 \right)}+\dfrac{\left( -5 \right)}{\left( 4x+3 \right)}\]

Therefore, \[\dfrac{46+13x}{12{{x}^{2}}-11x-15}=\dfrac{7}{\left( 3x-5 \right)}-\dfrac{5}{\left( 4x+3 \right)}\] has been resolved into partial fraction.

Note: Whenever the degree of denominator is greater than numerator, always first try to factorize the denominator in these types of questions. Then solve for A and B by solving

\[\dfrac{mx+n}{\left( x-a \right)\left( x-b \right)}=\dfrac{A}{\left( x-a \right)}+\dfrac{B}{\left( x-b \right)}\]

like in the above solution. Finally, students should always cross check if the partial fractions are giving the same expression as given in the question by solving it.
