Solution

Given:
Focal length, = 5 cm
Image distance, = Distance of the lens from the screen = +20 cm (for real image)
Object distance, = ?
Applying lens formula, we get:
1/v-1/= 1/f
1/20-1/= 1/5
Or,
1/= 1/20-1/5 =-3/20
Or,
 =-20/3 =-6.6 cm

Thus, to form a real image, the object should be placed at a distance of 6.6 cm from the lens.
