    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

    when P=1200W , R=12Ù
    the current is I^2=P/R=100 , I=10A
    So the power P=? R=6Ù I=10A
    P=I^2R= 100*6=600W
