Expert Answer:

General formula for magnification in mirror
m equals negative v over u equals fraction numerator H e i g h t space o f space i m a g e over denominator H e i g h t space o f space o b j e c t end fraction
m equals fraction numerator f minus v over denominator f end fraction equals fraction numerator f over denominator f minus u end fraction
General formula for magnification in lens
m equals v over u equals fraction numerator H e i g h t space o f space i m a g e over denominator H e i g h t space o f space o b j e c t end fraction
m equals fraction numerator f minus v over denominator f end fraction equals fraction numerator f over denominator f plus u end fraction
There is no such thing as general value of magnification. It depends on the position of object and the type of lens/mirror used.
