please can u further explain the two different formulaes in the answer cause i still did not understand the answer to my previous question as follows a lens of focal length f is cut into two equal parts without affecting its curvature. the two pieces will have equal focal length of ________ can u explain the answer as follows 1/F=1/f+1/f F=f/2 1/f=1/f'+1/f' f'=2f
