For lens  \mathrm{u=30 \mathrm{~cm}, f=20 \mathrm{~cm}}, hence by using  \mathrm{\frac{1}{f}=\frac{1}{v}-\frac{1}{u}}   we have

\mathrm{\frac{1}{+20}=\frac{1}{v}-\frac{1}{-30} \quad \Rightarrow v=60 \mathrm{~cm} }

The final image will coincide with the object, if light ray falls normally on convex mirror as shown. From the figure it is clear that gap between lens and mirror is

60 – 10 = 50cm
