So in this problem, the focal length of the eyeglasses, which is being used as the magnifier, is a 10 centimeter. Now for part, A remember angular magnification is maximum when the image is formed at the near normal near point, which is when Q is negative. 25 centimeter. So from here we can just find him. Max, cause one plus 25 over F. It calls one plus 25 centimeter over 18 and this is going to give me 2.39 And this is the maximum angle of magnification for par V. Now, when the I is relaxed, it missed object is actually placed at the focal length. All right, so in this case, the magnification when the object is placed at the focal length is going to be M because 25 centimeter over f and this is going to give me 1.39
