#### Explanation:

The unit of current, the Ampere, is defined as 1 Coulomb of charge per second, therefore, the current,

One of the ways to compute power consumed by a circuit is, using the equation:

where I is the current and R is the resistance.

I will assume that you mean that the circuit consumes 42 Watts:

Solve for R:
