Expert Answer:

When a number or expression can be split up into two or more parts which when added will recover the original number or expression are called partial fractions.

For example,

1/((x-b)(x-a)) will have partial fractions as A/(x-a) and B/(x-b) so that,

1/((x-b)(x-a)) = A/(x-a) + B/(x-b)
