1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
An object is kept at a distance d=2.5cm from a Glass sphere of radii R=10 cm .Find the final image of the point object?

$$\mu =1.5$$

2. Relevant equations
$$\frac{\mu_{2}}{v}-\frac{\mu_{1}}{u}=\frac{\mu_{2}-\mu_{1}}{R}$$

3. The attempt at a solution
it is a simple question where we have two interfaces and we have to calculate the image due to 1st surface which acts as object for second and then the final image.
But i am not getting the answer

Show your calculations. What is your answer? What are the values of refractive indices

the answer is 15cm in front of mirror
attempt being
for the first case object distance is -2.5cm and R.I is 1.5 plugging in the formulae i get
the image distance is v=-30/7
so this ats as image for 2nd surface and bject distance being u=-170/7=-30/7-20

again putiing in the values gives v=-85 cm which is far from the answer i don't get what i did wrong

The problem, as stated in the first para, presumably talks about a mirror. The attempt at solution talks about interfaces and RIs. Would you formulate the problem clearly?
