A converging lens ( f = 10.4 cm) is held 8.80 cm in front of a newspaper, the print size of which has a height of 2.04 mm. Find the image distance (in cm) and the height (in mm) of the magnified print.

D= _____cm

H= _____cm

2. Relevant equations

1/f=1/do+1/di

3. The attempt at a solution

1/10.4=1/8.80+1/di

I know this is the right setup but i feel like an idiot because I forget basic math...I don't remember how to solve this equation so if something can walk me through it step by step that would be great. I only have a simple scientific calculator that I keep using and get a decimal that isn't that right answer so i just don't know
