## Confused about image size in plane, concave, or convex mirrors

So I know these equations

1/f = 1/p + 1/i
m = -i/p

f: focal length
p: object distance from mirror
i: image distance from mirror
m: magnification

Let's say that I have an object in front of a concave or convex mirror with the same |f|. p is much larger than the radius of curvature. Based on the equations above, |m|<1. Also, |m| should be nearly same for both mirrors. Does this mean that the images produced by the two mirrors would appear to be about the same size?

Also, if I replace the concave or convex mirror with a plane mirror (while keeping p the same), |m| would be 1 for the image. Does this mean that the image produced by the plane mirror would appear to be larger than the image produced by the concave/convex mirrors?

(I tried to check this using a spoon, but the spoons I have are not very reflective...)

 Yes to all.
