If there is a cube or fourth power on the bottom line, and the highest power on the numerator is larger then you can use the method of replacing the fraction with A/... + B/... and so on.If the numerator < denominator then you have to use algebraic long division to find the quotient and remainder, then use the A,B,C method.

x^a *x^b =x^(a+b)When the denominator contains a term of say (x + 2)^(1/2) then multiply the numerator and the denominator by (x +2)^(1/2) so that the denominator becomes (x + 2) because the addition of the indices (1/2) + (1/2) = 1. For a cube root multiply the numerator and the denominator by say (x + a) ^(1-1/3) and that is multiply both the numerator and the denominator by (x+a)^(2/3). Similarly for any other root. You can now apply the rules of Partial Fractions.
