Combining

#### Explanation:

Probably not a lot more explanation needed. We are given a voltage

We do know a way to find the current, given the voltage and the resistance: Ohm's Law :

Rearranging:

We could calculate the current and then substitute that into the expression for the power, but I decided to combine the equations instead:

Then it's just a matter of substituting in the values we have and we know the power produced by the circuit.
