In this case, we can write the formula of lens as

@$\frac {1}{F}=\frac {1}{d} + \frac {1}{f} (1)@$

where F the focal length, d is the object distance, f is the image distance

Using (1) we got

@$f=\frac {Fd}{d-F} (2) @$

f=39.3 cm


The magnification of the lens is given by formula

@$k=\frac {f}{d} (3)@$

k=0.54


Answer

39.3 cm, 0.54
