Dear students,
Power of combination of lens is
P1 + P2=2D + (-1.5 D) = 0.5 D

As power is positive lens is convex lens of power 0.5 D
First Lens Power = +2.D
Focal length = 1m /P = 100 cm/2 = 50 cm

focall length = 100 cm/1.5 = -67 cm

It is a convex lens
Ascend lens
Power = -1.5
focall length = 100 cm/1.5 = -67 cm
Itr is a concave lens with negative focal length.
