    Solution Preview

    First we need to calculate the resistor of this 60W/240V lighbulb, say R. By a formulae "Power=Voltage*Voltage/Resistor", so we have
    R=240*240/60=960(O)
    Similarly, we know that the resistor ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution is given as a described equation. The expert determines how bright the relative bulbs will be and how much power will be consumed.
