Wait, you mean to say that... I should intentionally degrade the performance of the code? That is silly.

It's possible that $prof was concerned about an overflow in the denominator when x and/or a are large. Unless you're using inappropriately small datatypes, however, this shouldn't be a concern.

As an aside, does someone who knows floating point better than I do want to comment on the (infinitessimal) accuracy/precision differences between the two?
