										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
Thus knowing the total number of pages you can determine p and p+1 numerically.

if pth term of AP is q and qth term of Ap is p prov that nth term is p+q-n
a ​p ​= q = a + (p-1)d (1) a q ​=p = a + (q-1)d (2) (1) – (2​) q-p = (p-q)d d= -1 Substituting d in (1) a= p+q -1 a n = a+(n-1)d = p+q-1 + (n-1)(-1) a n = p+q-1 -n +1 = p+q-n

My solution disappeared!! Hint: sin t cos t = ½ [(sin t + cost) 2 -1]. So use substitution sin t +cos t = y, and solve for y. Required expression is 5/4 – 2y
