we have mirror equation, (1/v) + (1/u) = 1/f  .....................(1)
 
where v is mirror-to-image distance, u is mirror-to-object distance and f is focal length of mirror
 
magnification m = -v/u =  -v/(-20) = -4  or  v = -80 cm
 
hence focal lenth of mirror is obtained using eqn.(1),   (1/80)+(1/20) = 1/f  ; we get f = 16 cm
 
Hence focal length = 16 cm
 
image distance from mirror = 80 cm
