Solution

Height of the image, h1 = 1.5 cm

Object distance from` the side of the convex lens, `u_1 = -40 cm`

`|u_1| = 40 cm`

According to the lens formula:

`1/v_1 - 1/u_1 = 1/f_1`

Where

`v_1` = Image distance

`1/v_1 = 1/30 + 1/(-40) = (4-3)/120 = 1/120`

`:. v_1` = 120 cm

Magnification,  `m = v_1/|u_1|`

`= 120/40 = 3`

Hence, the magnification due to the convex lens is 3.

The image formed by the convex lens acts as an object for the concave lens.

According to the lens formula:

`1/v_2 - 1/u_2 = 1/f_2`

Where

`u_2` = Object distance

= +(120 - 8) =112 cm

`v_2` = Image distance

`1/v_2  = 1/-20 + 1/112  = (-112 + 20)/2240 = (-92)/2240`

`:.v_2 = -2240/92 cm`

Magnification, `m' = |v_2/u_2|`

`= 2240/92 xx 1/112 = 20/92`

Hence, the magnification due to the concave lens is `20/92`.

The magnification produced by the combination of the two lenses is calculated as: `m xx m'`

`= 3 xx 20/92 = 60/92 = 0.652`

The magnification of the combination is given as:

`h_2/h_1 = 0.652`

`h_2 = 0.652 xx h_1`

Where

h1 = Object size = 1.5 cm

h2 = Size of the image

`:. h_2 = 0.652 xx 1.5 = 0.98 cm`

Hence, the height of the image is 0.98 cm.
