This is MJMATH, good morning to you.
How would I use rationalization to simplify the expression;
9t2

t + 2  2 √ t + 1
Note: above the line = 9 t squared
below the line = t + 2  2 ( the square root of t + 1).
Thank you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What exactly are you looking to do? You can rationalize the function by multiplying the top and bottom by the radical of the bottom ( (t+2)+2[(t+1)^(1/2)] ), but to be quite frankly honest, it doesn't really give you a better looking or more simple answer. By rationalizing the function, I mean moving the radical from the bottom to the top.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hm. I think it's better looking. Doesn't the denominator disappear altogether?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and I meant to say the conjugate of the bottom, not the radical
