Homework Help: Find the distance of Vermeer's room

  1. Nov 18, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Here is the original problem: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=272077
    This is the part I need help with (bolded):
    The image of the D and VP (thoguh I've already done it, I found another document after I was complete--what a shame--that had a similar almost same diagram for the D and VP parts: http://www.math.nus.edu.sg/aslaksen/projects/ykk-urops.pdf
    (page 27)
    2. Relevant equations
    magnification: m = [tex]\frac{d_{i}}{d_{o}}[/tex]

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I found m: 5.2 (you may check, I used hight to find it, and measuring from the skecth graph) I want to know how to find either [tex]d_{i}[/tex] or [tex]d_{o}[/tex] and which one I should find first.
