Bulbs and electricity

In the sports hall, 875 identical light bulbs light for 2 hours. How long does it take for 100 such light bulbs to consume the same amount of electricity?

Correct result:

t =  17.5 h


875 2=100 t  t=875 2100=352=352 h=17.5 h

We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you!
