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.
