(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A concave mirror (f = 44 cm) produces an image whose distance from the mirror is one-fourth the object distance.

(a) Determine the object distance.

cm

(b) Determine the (positive) image distance.

cm

2. Relevant equations

1/do +1/di =1/f do=object distance and di=image distance

3. The attempt at a solution

Since there are two unknowns I thought I could change the equation to 1/do + 1/4do = 1/f....and solve but this wasn't turning out right? am I going about this the wrong way?
