An object is placed 12.0 cm in front of a converging lens of focal length 5.00 cm. A concave mirror with radius of curvature 20.0 cm is located 30.0 cm in back of the lens as shown. (refer to attached picture)

1.) At what distance from the lens does the first image (from the lens) form?
2.) What is the magnification of the first image?
3.) What is the object distance to be used to calculate the image formed by the mirror?
4.) What is the distance from the mirror to the image formed by the mirror?
5.) What is the magnification of the mirror image compared to the original object seen by the lens?
6.) Is the image formed by the mirror real or virtual?
7.) Find the location and magnification of the final image
