Given object size = 5 cm
u = -30 cm
f = 20 cm, v = ?
Using the lens formula 1/f = 1/v-1/u
We have 1/v = 1/u + 1/f = 1/-30 + 1/20 = -2+3/60 = 1/60

===> 1/v = 1/60
Therefore v = 60cm
Magnification v/u = 60/-30 = -2

Magnification = Image size/Object size

hi/ho = -2
hi/5 = -2
hi = -2x5 = -10 cm
The image is real inverted and magnified.
