 Size of the object [o] = +7cm
  F = -18cm
  U= -27cm
 V = ?
 1/f = 1/v+1/u
 1/-18cm = 1/v-1/27
  1/v= -1/54 v = -54cm
Since Vis – ve screen should be placed at 54cm in front of the mirror.
Size of the image : m= I/O= -v/u I/7=-[54/27] I= -14cm
Nature of the image : image is real , inverted and magnified.
