                                        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.

the positive integer is just greater than (1+0.0001) 10000 is ​ a) 4 b) 5 c) 2 d) 3
It is well known that lim n—> inf (1 + 1/n)^n evaluates to e. So if we put n = 10000 (1 + 1/10000)^10000 And by binomial theorem, Using the binomial theorem: ( 1 + 1/10000 )^10000 = 10000C0 ...
