User informed about mandatory use of homework template.
A convex mirror has a focal length of 16cm. How far behind the mirror does the image of a person 3.0m away appear?

I've tried using the equation
1/f = 1/do + 1/di

The answer to the solution is -15cm but I'm not sure how to get there. I'm thinking that it might have something that deals with theory to solve this.

What did you get when you tried to use this?
