(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Heres the problem exactly as written:

A system of lenses is composed of three lenses. Calculate the maximum magnification these three lenses will achieve if the lenses are located 35.0 cm apart. The lenses have focal lengths of 15.0, 20.0, and 25.0 cm.

2. Relevant equations

1/p + 1/q = 1/f

M = q/p = h`/h

3. The attempt at a solution

I am confused on the maximum magnification part. It seems that would depend on where you placed the object or would it matter in which order the lenses are placed? An hints would be greatly appreciated.
