1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
My notes are missing a step. How do I get $$\frac{{x^{n + 1} }}{{\sqrt {n + 1} }}\frac{{\sqrt n }}{{x^n }} = \frac{{x\sqrt n }}{{\sqrt {n + 1} }}$$

2. Relevant equations
I'm trying like this, but I don't seem to be arriving at the same step as the example:
$$\frac{{x^{n + 1} }}{{\sqrt {n + 1} }}\frac{{\sqrt n }}{{x^n }} = \frac{{x^{n + 1} }}{{\sqrt {n\left( {1 + \frac{1}{n}} \right)} }}\frac{{\sqrt n }}{{x^n }} = \frac{{x^{n + 1} }}{{\sqrt n \sqrt {\left( {1 + \frac{1}{n}} \right)} }}\frac{{\sqrt n }}{{x^n }} = \frac{{x^{n + 1} }}{{\sqrt {\left( {1 + \frac{1}{n}} \right)} }}\frac{1}{{x^n }}$$

Thanks!

Never mind. I figured it out. x^(n+1)/x^n = x
