## Homework Statement

A camera lens has focal length 55mm and an object is 500mm away. Calculate the position of the image and the magnification (or reduction)

## Homework Equations

1/u + 1/v = 1/f

u = Object Distance

v = Image Distance

f = focal length

m = magnification

## The Attempt at a Solution

f = 55

u = 500

1/500 + 1/v = 1/55

1/55 - 1/500 = 1/v

55

^{-1}- 500

^{-1}= 0.01618

ANS

^{-1}= 61.79 so approximately 62mm

v/u = m

62/500 = 0.124M

Did I go with the right approach? Any help would be great.
