                                        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.

In an increasing gp the sum of the first and the last term is 66. The product of the second and the last but one is 128 and the sum of the sum of the terms is 126 ..then the no. Of terms in...
a+ar n-1 =66 ar*ar n-2 =128 a(r n -1)/(r-1)=63 solving 1 and 2 we get r n-1 =32 so r n =32r put it in equation 3 to get r=2

if a,b,c,d are positive real numbers such that a/3=a+b/4=a+b+c/5=a+b+c+d/6 then a/b+2c+3d
Let a/3 = a + b / 4 = a + b + c / 5 = a + b + c + d/ 6 = k then, a = 3k, b = k, c = k, d = k a/b + 2c + 3d = 3k/k + 2k + 3k = 3k/6k = 1/2

1+cosx (2sinx-cosx)=sin^2x
1 + cosx(2sinx – cosx) = sin 2 x 1 + 2sinx.cosx – cos 2 x = sin 2 x 1 + 2sinx.cosx = sin 2 x + cos 2 x 1 + 2sinx.cosx = 1 sin2x = 0 2x = n(pi) x = n(pi) / 2
