The divisional property of exponents is that when you divide by an exponent (when the base is equal) that you subtract the exponent being divided.

If x = 1, what you would have is 10^2 / 10^2, right?

Then you would have 10^2(2)

Since we don't x, we leave it there.

So if it was 10^A / 10^B, we did 10^AB

So we have 10^x+1 / 10^x3, becomes 10^(x+1)(x3), (x3) = x + 3, right? So we have 10^x+1x+3 Finally: We have 10 to all these together: x x +1 +3 x + (x) = 0 1 + 3 = 4 0+4 = 4 So we have 10^4
