1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
For each thin lens shown in the figure , calculate the location of the image of an object that is 18.5 {\rm cm} to the left of the lens. The lens material has a refractive index of 1.50, and the radii of curvature shown are only the magnitudes.

Using the relevant equation find the focal length of each lens.
Then using the formula
1/f = 1/do + 1/di find the position of the iamge.

Show your calcualtions. With out that I can't see where your making mistakes.
