## Homework Statement

refractive index = 1.33 (water)

real depth = 10m

## Homework Equations

refractive index = real depth divided by apparent depth

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm going to call apparent depth X

1.33 = 10/x

So I multiply 10/x by 10 so that i have x and 1.33 x 10 is 13.3... that's right, isn't it? but that makes no sense, because the apparent depth must be less than the actual depth.

I know the real answer is 7.52.. what am I doing wrong?

No idea if the problem is with my maths or my physics.
