Is there any adjective here missed out?
[Topic question added to post. DonnyB - moderator]

I saw this sentence in a textbook:

------- Mr. Edwards is very familiar with the Chinese market and would like to discuss various schemes which he feels might be __?__ to our mutual (mistyped as 'matual' before this edit) advantage (mistyped before as 'advangages). -----

If there is any, what would you think it may be?

    Hi! Is that copied correctly from the book (there are two mistakes) and please tell us which textbook it is. How many words are needed? It looks like two.

    Sorry for having mistyped the word 'advantage' in the original text as 'advangages'.

    Yes, you can leave out the adjective and just say "It is to our mutual advantage," the phrase itself being adjectival. In fact, throwing in "beneficial" would actually be redundant.
