Learn to use the lens (and mirror) equation:

1/Do + 1/Di = 1/f

The object distance is Do = 17.0 cm in your case.

The focal length is 23.2 cm in this case.

Solve for image distance Di

The magnification is |Di/Do|

(note absolute value signs|.

Di will be negative in this case. That means the image is virtual, and not inverted.
