Equation 7.6.1 Laplace Transform of Amount in the Body after an IV Bolus - Two Compartment model
Note that the denominator has a power of 2 in s and no repeating terms. The numerator has a power of 1 in s. Therefore the fingerprint method can be applied.
Setting the denominator to zero:
(s + α) * (s + β) = 0
gives the two roots -α and -β.
The finger print method can then be applied as illustrated in the QuickTime® movie below.
