Hi ng29,
if we use the sum of n terms formula we get 
29=6(r^15-1)/r-1
=> 6r^15 -29r – 23=0
now , how to get the value of r from here?
plz. guide 
Thank you

ok i understand that whats ur doubt
equation of such higher degree is impossible to solve
so method for this is hit and trial
on putting  r =  -1  , condition is satisfied , hence the answer
