1/f = 1/p + 1/q

What is the rate of change of p with respect to q if q = 2 and f = 6? (Make sure you have the correct sign for the rate.)

1/p = 1/6 - 3/6 = - 2/6 = -1/3

so

p = -3

now the calculus, assume f is a constant of the lens so df/d anything = 0.

0 = (-dp/dq)/p^2 - (-1)/q^2

dp/dq = p^2/q^2 = 9/2 = 4.5
