Okay. So in this problem we have a near sighted student with a fair point off 1.9 meters and he looks at himself in the mirror. So the draw is this. We have a mirror here. We have the students here and we have the image here. And this is the distance of the object of the mirror. This is the distance off the image in the mirror. Okay. So because this student is using a plain mirror, we know that this distance should be equal to the distance of the image. So the distance of the object needs to be the distance of the image. Therefore, the distance I see it's tryst distance hissed, ending from the mirror. And that's what we want to discover. So So just stow the Terminator. What is the distance off the students to the mirror? We just need to big 1.9 divided by two. This is going to be a course to zero point 95 meters, and that's no answer. Just a problem
