I read somewhere that you are supposed to leave radicals in the denominator when dealing with calculus. Before, I used to rationalize them to the numerator but my Calculus book now has the answers written unrationalized. So I'm wondering if I should start getting use to NOT rationalizing radicals in the denominator. Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
