    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A microscope has a 1.6 cm focal-length eyepiece and 0.81 cm objective. Assume a relaxed normal eye.
    (a) Calculate the position of the object if the distance between the lenses is 16.0 cm.
    _____ cm (from the objective)
    (b) Calculate the total magnification.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    i understand that you need to find the magnification of the objective lens but i dont know how to do that with only the focal lengths
