A 100.0 W light bulb hangs from the ceiling. What is the visible light intensity on the floor, 2.1 m directly below the bulb, if 10% of its output is visible light?

So I am attempting to use: I= Power/area

however, I don't have a radius. I know 10% of 100 is 10 so that would be the intensity for that and that the refraction for air should be used but I am missing something...

HELP :)
