Please note that I am not going to do your homework for you! One of the signs of being able to work in the world is to be able to solve little problems like this without having to get the answer from others. Your teacher is actually testing your problem solving skills with this test. Humanity will advance in technology only when people go and solve problems rather than relying on somebody else to give them the answer. As a result, the below is probably more than I should do for you in solving the problem but notice that the first thing that you have to do is to figure out the questions to ask. The questions that you have to ask are: 1) What lenses do you have available to you? 2) How much power are you going to need to be able to see the print? 3) How are you going to put the lenses that you have to make that telescope?
