Homework Help: Images produced by a simple two lens microscope?

  1. Dec 13, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The image formed by a simple two lens microscope is
    (a) real and inverted.
    (b) real and upright.
    (c) virtual and upright.
    (d) virtual and inverted.
    (e) none of these.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I was confused on how to understand how the optics of a two lens microscope would work. If two lens are used, would it produce a virtual image? I know a converging lens would produce a real image and a diverging lens would produce a virtual image. So in any case (convex & convex, convexe & concave, or concave & concave), would we have a diverging lens that would be conveying the image? I'm not sure though if it would appear upright or inverted though...
