Concave Mirror Problems

The famous Chinese magician Foo Ling Yu performs a classic magic trick using a concave mirror with a focal length of 1.6 m. Foo uses the mirror to produce an image of a light bulb that is the same size as the light bulb itself and is at the same location. Explain, in complete sentences, how Foo accomplishes this magic trick. Be specific about the location of the light bulb.

Sometimes, when you sit by a lake in a forest, you can see perfect images of the hills and trees in the lake. Other times, when you are sitting beside the same lake, you cannot see any images in the water. Explain the difference between these two situations.
