The power in an electric circuit varies inversely with the resistance. If the power is 1200 watts when the resistance is 12 Ohms, find the power when the resistance is 6 Ohms.

A taxi company charges riders a fixed charge of $2.30 plus $1.20 per mile. How many miles must a rider go to have an average cost per mile of $1.30?

First, if you have a question, it is much better to put it in as a separate post in <Post a New Question> rather than attaching it to a previous question, where it is more likely to be overlooked.

Let n= # miles

2.30 + 1.20n = 1.30n

p = k/R

1200 = k/12

k = 14400

so

p = 14400/6

p = 2400 Watts

c = 1.2 m + 2.3

c/m = 1.2 + 2.3/m = 1.3

2.3/m = 0.1

m = 23 miles
