                                        Hello student,
Please find the answer to your question below
The sum of the numbers form an arithmetic progression.
So, assuming the number of pages is n, the first is number 1. And number missing are p and p+1 (a leaf is torn so two page numbers missing).
Then Sum of all pages= n/2 (2+n-1) {using the formula of sum of AP with a=1}
The Sum of remaining pages =15000=n/2(2+n-1)-p-(p+1);
=> 15000= n+n^2/2-n/2-2p-1
=> 15000=n^2/2+n/2-2p-1
=>14999*2=n^2+n-4p
=>4p=n^2+n-14999*2
=>p=(n^2+n-14999*2)*0.25
=>p=(n(n+1)-14999*2)*0.25
Thus knowing the total number of pages you can determine p and p+1 numerically.

Multiply by i 5 on both sides. In RHS, put i 5 =i, while in LHS take i in brackets. After this, take the conjugate of the equation and cancel the negative terms.

Please help in solving this question . If sinA + sin 2 A = 1 . PROVE that cos 12 a +3 cos 10 A + 3 cos 8 A + cos 6 A – 1 = 0 .
 
 
sinA = 1-sin 2 A sinA=cos 2 A so, cos12A=sin6A …...................(1) and 3cos 8 A + 3cos 6 A =3cos 6 A(cos 2 A+cos 4 A)=3cos 2 Asin 2 a(cos 2 A+sin 2 A) …................(2) (as,sinA=cos...

What does the following mean? Three planes can intersect coaxially , implies that system of equations in 3 variables having infinite solutions.
 
 
Hii Yes coaxial planes are parallel. Hence there will be infinite solutions to the system of equations. Best of Luck

3 ∫ 2 (2x 2 + 1) dx
 
 
integration of (2(X^2)+1)dx from 2 to 3 is equal to (2((x^3)/3)+x) from 2 to3 =(2((3^3)/3)+3)-(2((2^3)/3)+2) =(2*(27/3)+3)-(2*(8/3)+2) =(18+3)-((16/3)+2) =(21)-(22/3) =41/3

Ans:- 3 ∫ 2 (2x 2 +1)dx =2[(x 2+1 /2+1)] 2 3 +[x] 2 3 =2[(x 3 /3)] 2 3 +[x] 2 3 =2[(3 3 /3)+(2 3 /3)]+[3-2] =2[(27+8)/3]+1 =2[(35/3)]+1 =(70/3)+1 =73/3
