Given $$f_e = 3 cm $$ and 
           $$f_o = 1.2 cm $$
           $$u_o = 1.25 cm $$
           $$v_e = \infty $$
From , $$\displaystyle \frac{1}{u_o} + \frac{1}{v_o} = \frac{1}{f_o} $$,
we get $$\displaystyle \frac{1}{v_o} = \frac{1}{1.2} - \frac{1}{1.25}$$
$$v_o = 30$$ cm 
Magnification of microscope $$\displaystyle m=\frac{v_o}{u_o} (1+\frac{D}{f_e})$$
$$\displaystyle  m = \frac{30}{1.25} (1+\frac{25}{3}) \simeq 200 $$            .
