The Thin-Lens Equation: Distance from lens 1 to the final image; What is the magnification of this image?

See diagram in the attached file.

Two lenses that are L = 37 cm apart are used to form an image, as shown in Figure 26-52. Lens 1 is diverging and has a focal length f1 = -7 cm; lens 2 is converging and has a focal length f2 = 17 cm.
