### How many times larger are the images under 10x objective magnification that the are under 4x?

A microscope total magnification is the product of an eyepiece
magnification and an objective magnification. For example, if you
have an 10x eyepiece and 10x objective, the microscope
magnification will be 100x. For 10x eyepiece and 4x objective the
total magnification will be 40x. therefore, the image under 10x
objective is 2.5 times larger than under 4x with the same
eyepiece.
Actually, 10x / 4x=2.5 times. So, that is the answer.
