- Homework Statement
- An object at point p reflects in a convex or concave mirror at origin.

Given that m = 0.4 (lateral magnification), p = +30

The image is inverted. Find i (distance from orgin to reflected image).

- Relevant Equations
- m = -i/p

The equation gives us that

i = -mp = -0.4 * 30 = -12

The 'correct' answer is +12.

i = -mp = -0.4 * 30 = -12

The 'correct' answer is +12.
