Grade of road is slope in percentage
So slope of a x% grade = x 100 Slope = 10 100 = 1 10 Slope = 0.1

Can anyone show me how to simplify this fraction:
(k+1)((k+1)+1)(2(k+1)+1)6;.
What can be factored out and so forth?
Thanks.

How exactly is this happening?
I was studying Derivative and my book says if:
y = ( 1 + x 2 ) 3
Then its derivative is:
y = 3 ( 2 x ) ( 1 + x 2 ) 2 2 ( 1 + x 2 ) 1 = 3 x ( 1 + x 2 )
I can't understand how the writer has changed the first derivative fraction into the second one. In other words, how did he simplify?
Note: I'm really really basic, so please explain in details.
Thank you.

Struggling to finish an exponential equation
I have this exponential equation I tried solving but I'm stuck at the end.
The problem is this:
4 x 3 x 1 2 = 3 x + 1 2 2 2 x 1
And my approach is this:
2 2 x + 2 2 x 1 = 3 x + 1 2 + 3 x 1 2
2 2 x ( 1 + 2 1 ) = 3 x ( 3 1 2 + 3 1 2 )
2 2 x 3 2 = 3 x ( 3 + 1 3 )
2 2 x 3 2 = 3 x ( 3 2 + 1 3 )
2 2 x 3 2 = 3 x 4 3 3 --> here I have rationalized the fraction
2 2 x 3 x = 4 3 3 2 3
( 2 2 3 ) x = 8 3 9
Now I hope I didn't make an error. How should I proceed from this point? Is there another way around this problem?
