1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A concave mirror has a focal length of f=50 cm. If an object is at o=500cm, where is the image?
2. Relevant equations
1/f = 1/o + 1/i
3. The attempt at a solution
1/50 = 1/500 + 1/55.56
What I don't understand is "where is the image"? How do I interpret it from my solution?
