Finding focus

  1. Apr 12, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What focus is needed for in order for a diverging lens to produce a magnification of 0.60x on an object located 1.40 meters away?

    2. Relevant equations
    1/do + 1/di = 1/f
    M= -di/do

    3. The attempt at a solution
    -di / 1.4 = 0.6
    1/1.4 + 1/.84 =1/f

    Is that + sign correct?

    Just a small remark - rather say what focal length is needed....
