## Homework Statement

A nearsighted man uses his ideally prescribed contact lenses that have a refractive power of −3.60 diopters. He would like a prescription for eyeglasses. What is the correct eyeglasses prescription if he wears his eyeglasses a distance of 2.30 cm from his eyes?

## Homework Equations

I used the mirror equation. 1/f = 1/d

_{o}+ 1/d

_{i}

## The Attempt at a Solution

I found a solution to be -3.32 and what I did was convert the refraction power to focus and then convert it to centimeters and added 2.3 and then did the inverse of that to obtain -3.32 and apparently that is wrong. I have used chegg and they show the same exact method I employed. I don't understand. Help!
