Put ( n=2, quad S_{2}=1-T_{2}+2 T_{2}-2 T_{2}^{2} ) where [ begin{array}{c} T_{1}+T_{2}=1+T / 2-2 T_{2}^{2} 2 T_{2}^{2}=1-T_{1} Rightarrow T_{2}^{2}=frac{1-left(frac{-1}{sqrt{2}}right)}{2}=frac{sqrt{2}+1}{2 sqrt{2}}(1) end{array} ] Quick and Stepwise Solutions Just click and Send OVER 20 LAKH QUESTIONS ANSWERED Download App for Free
