magnification = image size (observed size under microscope) ÷ real sizeconvert 1.5 cm to micrometers = 15000 so15000/25 = 600xSo a magnification of 600. I think..

So you know that magnification= image( observational size)/ actual size
You need to convert 1.5cm into millimetres which is 15mm
Next you need to convert the 15mm into micrometers which is 15000nm because you X1000.
Then do:
15000/25= 600x magnification
