Hi guys~

" all you had to do was make sure you had paper and pen handy at all times"

" all you had to do was to make sure you had paper and pen handy at all times"


Which is grammatically correct? and please explain cause to me as I am extremely confused about the difference.

    Either make or to make would convey your thought. The "to" would be implied in the sentence where the entire infinitive "to make" is not used.
