  1. 1/Do + 1/Di = 2/R
    Di is the image distance and Do is the object distance. Surely you have seen this equation before, if you have been doing your studies.

    1/1 + 1/Di = 2/0.4

    1 + 1/Di = 5

    1/Di = 4 Di = 1/4 m

    The image is demagnified by a factor Di/Do = 1/4

    What is 1/4 of 0.2 ?
    Di = 1/4 m is the image dstance
