- 1/p+1/q=-2/R

So I am not really familiar with lens questions when there's 2 different refraction indexes. I tried using n1/p+n2/q=-(n2-n1)/R but it doesn't seem to work.

p would be the actual location of the fly and q would be the virtual location, what the fish sees if I am understanding correctly. n1 would be the index of refraction where the fly is and n2 where the virtual image is?

So 1/60+1.3/q=-1.3/64. q=-35.155

So the image is 35.155 cm above the water. But this is wrong, the answer is 60.88 cm
