Objective distance, u = 27 cm

Object height, h = 7 cm

Focal length, f = 30 cm

R = 2f, f = -18 cm

As per mirror formula

Screen should be placed in front of mirror at the distance of = 54 cm

Negative sign of magnification indicates image is real Magnification,

h1 = 7 × (2) = -14 cm

Image is inverted because of negative sign.
