A Problem from Optics – Reflection of light

Convex and concave mirrors have same radii of curvature R. The distance between the mirrors is 2R. At what point on the common optical axis of the mirrors should a point source of light A be placed for the rays to converge at the point A after being reflected first on the convex and then on the concave mirror?
