mirror equation that involves focal lenth f, object-to-mirror distance u and image-to-mirror distance v is given by
begin mathsize 12px style 1 over f equals 1 over u plus 1 over v end style
begin mathsize 12px style 1 over 8 equals 1 over v plus 1 over 20 end style
we get v = 40/3 cm.  magnitude of magnification begin mathsize 12px style equals space v over u equals fraction numerator begin display style bevelled 40 over 3 end style over denominator 20 end fraction space equals space 2 over 3 end style
area of image = 4×4×(2/3)×(2/3) = 7.11 sq.cm
