What is the cost of running five 50W lamps and four 100W lamps for 10 hours if electrical energy costs 2 kobo per kWh?

Answer Details

PT = (5 x 50) + (100 x 4)

= 650watts

Energy(kWhr) = 650 x 10-3 x 10

= 6.5 kWhr

1kWhr cost 2 kobo ; 6.5 kWhr will cost 2×6.51 $\frac{2\times 6.5}{1}$

= 13 kobo
