The students write their predictions about where the image is and what it will look like.

Which of the following statements are most consistent with the data?

Select TWO answers.


Student 1 says that the image is real and smaller in size than the object.


Student 2 states that the image is enlarged and located $18\text{ centimeters}$ in on the same side of the lens as the object is.


Student 3 states that the image is located $18\text{ centimeters}$ on the opposite side the lens compared to the object and is upside down.


Student 4 states that the image is located $7.5\text{ centimeters}$ from the lens and is virtual because it is in between the focal point and the mirror.
