## Homework Statement

This is a 2 part problem:

4- A person is to be fitted with bifocals. She can see clearly when the object is between 49 cm and 1.5 m from the eye. The upper portions of the bifocals should be designed to enable her to see distant objects clearly. What power should they have? Answer in units of diopters.

5- The lower portions of the bifocals should en- able her to see objects comfortably at 25 cm. What power should they have? Answer in units of diopters.

## Homework Equations

P=[tex]\frac{1}{f}[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

4- P = [tex]\frac{1}{0.49 m}[/tex] = 2.04 x 100 = 204 D

or it might be P = [tex]\frac{1}{1.5 m}[/tex] = 0.666 x 100 = 66.6 D

5- P = [tex]\frac{1}{0.25 m}[/tex] = 4 x 100 = 400 D

I know I am doing something wrong can you help me?! TIA
