**PsyDAG**, Sunday, February 3, 2013 at 4:32pmFirst, 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

**Damon**, Sunday, February 3, 2013 at 4:41pmp = k/R

1200 = k/12

k = 14400

so

p = 14400/6

p = 2400 Watts

c/m = 1.2 + 2.3/m = 1.3

2.3/m = 0.1

m = 23 miles
