Show that the mirror equation can be derived using the same principles that were used in deriving the equation for lenses.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\frac{1}{f}[/tex]=[tex]\frac{1}{d_{o}}[/tex]+[tex]\frac{1}{d_{i}}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

There really doesn't appear to be any work to put into this. It just seems logical.
