Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i believe its referring to both, the question is "describe the 3 steps in ray tracing used to identify where an image forms" very vague... so I'm assuming its asking both @Michele_Laino

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2of course, many other cases, depending on the relative position of the object with respect to the mirror, and depending on the type of lens and mirror used, are possible

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the steps would be identifying where the object is, then if the ray is parallel to the axis and finally where the lines meet to create the image... is that correct? @Michele_Laino
