Statement of a problem № 41132


The South American capybara is the largest rodent on Earth; its body can be 1.20 m long. The smallest rodent is the pygmy mouse found in Texas, with an average body length of 3.60 cm. Assume that a pygmy mouse is observed by looking through a lens placed 20.0 cm from the mouse. The whole image of the mouse is the size of a capybara. Then the lens is moved a certain distance along its axis, and the image of the mouse is the same size as before! How far was the lens moved?
