V = -40 cm
u = - 20 cm
 by mirror formula we have 1/v + 1/u = 1/f
1/f = 1/-40 + 1/-20
1/f = (-1 - 2)/ 40
1/f = -3/40
f = -40/3
f = -13.3334 cm

m = - v/u
m = -(-40)/-20
m = - 40/20 = -2

Therefore, Focal lenght = -13.3334 cm and Magnification = -2

i am meena studying in class 10th
this is my siso account
i am also studying in class 10.....!
ankit, u can use the equation editor present in the answering editor. it gives better looking answers. try clicking on Pi button when u are answering with calculations.
