I am really stuck on what to do.

"The completed lantern needs to produce a tightly focussed spot of light on a stage, it is positioned 12m horizontally away from it and 5m above it. It also has to fit a box that is 30cm long"

Parts avaliable:
light bulbs
light bulb holders
wiring
convex lenses - focal lengths of 2cm, 10cm and 50cm.
concave mirrors - focal lengths of 5cm, 20cm

could anyone help me with what i have to do to create the lantern.

This would make an excellent Gaussian Beam Optics question using the ABCD law.
How well do you know your matrix techniques for ray propagation?
