Lens Maker's formula

Click here to enlarge

Initially medium of R.I. n2 is assumed to extend to infinity, then for refraction at surface I, we have,

where v' is the distance P, I' of the intermediate image.

Now, the medium of R.I. n2 is cut off beyond surface II, therefore the medium on the rightside is again of R.I. n1 , the intermediate image I' will behave as if it is object for refraction at IInd surface, due to refraction at surface I the final image is formed at I.
