    B)deduce the size of a cheek cell

    I have worked out that the size of the cheek cell is 3cm.

    magnification = image size / object size

    30 micrometers = 0.003cm

    3/0.003 = 1000

    Object size = image size/magnifcation

    3/1000 = 0.003cm

    = 30 micrometers / 0.003cm

    Regards.
