R=10 F=R/2 F=10/2=5 F=-5(CONCAVE MIRROR) U=-8(CONCAVE MIRROR) HEIGHT OF OBJECT=1.5 V=? HEIGHT OF IMAGE=? I/F=1/U+1/V -I/5=-1/8-1/V -1/V=-1/5+1/8 -1/V=-8+5/40 -1/V=-3/40 1/V=3/40 V=40/3 HEIGHT OF IMAGE/HEIGHT OF OBJECT =-V/U HEIGHT OF IMAGE=40/3*1/-8*15/10                               =-20/8                               =-2.5
