Oh, sorry I didn't realise that I needed to provide my answer. I just want to check to see if I obtain the correct answer.

P=110i-19i^2
P'=110-38i
0=110-38i
i=2.8947
P"=-38 therefore a max

Max Power in watts = 2.8947

Hmmm. I agree with i at 2.89 amps
Powermax=put i in the formula for power given, and you have it.
