# [TIL] Rationalizing Substitution

Rationalizing Substitution is a special type of U-Substitution, radicals in function often cause problems when integrating, use rationalizing substitution we can transform the problem to help us solve them.

For example, sometimes our function contain something like $$\sqrt{x}$$, in order to eliminate the “square root”, we can make substitution $$x = z^2$$，$$dx = 2z dz$$. Then you may can solve function’s integration easier.
