We have lens equation :   (1/v) - (1/u) = 1/f  ..............................(1)
 
where v is lens-to-image distance, u is lens-to-object distance and f is focal length
 
By sign convention, u is -ve.
 
hence from eqn.(1), we get,  1/v = (1/15) - (1/25)    or v = 37.5 cm
 
magnification m = v/u = 37.5/(-25) = -1.5
 
Hence image is formed on other side of lens at a distance 37.5 cm from lens.
 
Image is magnified by 1.5 times. image is real and inverted.
