Do you use two lines (of regular ruled paper) for a rational function?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

FOr example, would you use two lines or one for the equation

## f(x) = (x^2-3) / x+2 ##

I can see three ways (in general) of writing this.

1) numerator and denominator each get one line

2) num and den are written smaller so they both fit on one line. or.

3) write it like latex, using the back slash

im just asking wrt what you think looks the neatest for homework and notes.

thank you
