The positive (+) sign of magnification (m) indicates that the image is virtual and erect. The magnification,m=1 indicates that the image is of the same size as the object. Thus, the magnification of +1 produced by a plane mirror means the image formed in a plane mirror is virtual, erect and of the same size as the object.
