    \[x^3-1=(x-1)(x^2+x+1)\]

    so \[\frac{2x}{x^3-1}=\frac A{x-1}+\frac {Bx+C}{x^2+x+1}\]

    the factor (x^2+x+1) is quadratic , so the denominator must be linear, not just a scalar

    \[\frac{2x}{x^3-1}=\frac{2x}{(x-1)(x^2+x+1)}=\frac A{x-1}+\frac {Bx+C}{x^2+x+1}\] \[2x=A(x^2+x+1)+(Bx+C)(x-1)\] to find the constants try x=1 , x=0
