Hello!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am preparing an exam about optics and I can't understand a formula.

my problem is at the end of the second page (the explanation is in Italian, but the formulas are easy to read for everybody).

I can't understand how in the last step

f=R/2 - (1+b) * r^2/4R etc they found -(1+b)

can somebody help me please?
