Lens equation:

$\overline{)\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{f}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{s}}_{\mathbf{o}}}{\mathbf{+}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{s}}_{\mathbf{i}}}}$

Magnification:

$\overline{){\mathbf{m}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{h}}_{\mathbf{i}}}{{\mathbf{h}}_{\mathbf{o}}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{-}}\frac{{\mathbf{s}}_{\mathbf{i}}}{{\mathbf{s}}_{\mathbf{o}}}}$
