    No. Example: √ 5 is an irrational expression in its simplest form. However, for expressions involving an irrational denominator like this:  3 ⁄ √ 5 you can rationalize the denominator like this:     3 ⁄ √ 5  =  (3 ⁄ √ 5) • [(√ 5) ⁄ (√ 5) ]  =  (3√ 5) ⁄ 5 Note that it's still irrational ... you can't change that.
