Enter the least distance of distinct vision and the focal length into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Magnifying Power.

## Magnifying Power Formula

MP = 1 + D/F

Variables:

- MP is the Magnifying Power (())
- D (mm) is the least distance of distinct vision
- F (mm) is the focal length

To calculate Magnifying Power, divide the least distance of distance vision by the focal length, then add 1 to the result.

## How to Calculate Magnifying Power?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Magnifying Power.

- First, determine the least distance of distinct vision.
- Next, determine the focal length.
- Next, gather the formula from above = MP = 1 + D/F.
- Finally, calculate the Magnifying Power.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

least distance of distinct vision = 85

focal length = 734
