Explanation:
We can rewrite the numerator as:
(n+2)(n+21)(n+22)!(n)!
=(n+2)(n+1)(n)!(n)!
We can cancel (n)! and (n)! out:
=(n+2)(n+1)11
=(n+2)(n+1)
=n2+3n+2
Thus, solved

I have been reading a paper: Wang X, Golbandi N, Bendersky M, Metzler D, Najork M. Position bias estimation for unbiased learning to rank in personal search.
I am wondering how they derive the M-step in an EM algorithm that has been applied to the problem in their paper.
This is the data log-likelihood function:
log P ( L ) = ( c , q , d , k ) L c log θ k γ q , d + ( 1 c ) log ( 1 θ k γ q , d ) .
where observed data are (c:click, q:query, d:document, k:result position) rows, and θ k is the probability a search result at rank k is examined by the user (assumed to be independent of query-document pair), and γ q , d is the probability a search result, i.e., a query-document pair is actually relevant (assumed to be independent of result position).
Here are some hidden variable probability expressions (E means examination and R means relevant, they assume that a click event implies a search result is both examined and relevant):
P ( E = 1 , R = 1 C = 1 , q , d , k ) = 1 P ( E = 1 , R = 0 C = 0 , q , d , k ) = θ k ( t ) ( 1 γ q , d ( t ) ) 1 θ k ( t ) γ q , d ( t ) P ( E = 0 , R = 1 C = 0 , q , d , k ) = ( 1 θ k ( t ) ) γ q , d ( t ) 1 θ k ( t ) γ q , d ( t ) P ( E = 0 , R = 0 C = 0 , q , d , k ) = ( 1 θ k ( t ) ) ( 1 γ q , d ( t ) ) 1 θ k ( t ) γ q , d ( t )
The paper has derived the M-step update formulas:
θ k ( t + 1 ) = c , q , d , k I k = k ( c + ( 1 c ) P ( E = 1 c , q , d , k ) ) c , q , d , k I k = k γ q , d ( t + 1 ) = c , q , d , k I q = q , d = d ( c + ( 1 c ) P ( R = 1 c , q , d , k ) ) c , q , d , k , I q = q , d = d
however, how to get these two formulas?
Note: M-step is usually derived from this formula:
Q ( θ θ ( t ) ) = E Z X , θ ( t ) [ log L ( θ ; X , Z ) ]
θ ( t + 1 ) = a r g m a x θ   Q ( θ θ ( t ) )
where θ are parameters (i.e., θ k and γ q , d in this case), X are data (c,q,d,k in this case), and Z are hidden variables (E and R?).

Better understanding of the pre sheaf kernel of φ
I'm currently reading chapter II of Hartshorne's algebraic geometry and am comfortable with the definition of a sheaf. I am new to the idea of the presheaf kernel of φ however.
Let φ : F G be a morphism of pre sheaves of abelian groups on a topological space X.
Am I correct in defining the kernel pre sheaf on φ to be the contra variant functor that consists of the data
For every open set U X, we have an abelian group Γ ( ker φ ( U ) , F )
For every inclusion V U open sets in X, we have a morphism ρ U V : Γ ( ker φ ( U ) , F ) Γ ( ker φ ( V ) , F ) that satisfies the usual three conditions (empty set, identity map and composition condition)?
Moreover,
Hartshorne remarks that while the pre sheaf kernel is a sheaf, in general, the pre sheaf cockernel and image are not sheaves. Is there any intuition for why this would be so?
