# I need help for my physics question very confused ?

So the question goes like this. Your family decides to charge you 4.0 cents/ (kW- h) for watching programs

on television. If the television set is rated at 125 W, how long can you watch for

5 cents?.

I know the answer is 10 hours but How do I get to that answer any help is greatly appreciated

5 cents / 4 cents/kwh = 1.25 kwh = 1250 wh

1250 wh / 125 w = 10 h

So 4¢ per kW-h= 1¢ per 250 W-h.

So 5¢=5 times 250=1,250 W-h total energy usage.

Since the TV consumes 125 W, 1,250 W-h/125 W=10 hr.(s)

(The W's cancel each other out.)
