Solution

Energy consumed by the TV in 1 hour, E1 = = 200 W x 1 hour = 200 Wh = 0.2 kWh
Energy consumed by the three bulbs in 1 hour, E2 = 3 x P x t = 3 x 100 W x 1 hour = 300 Wh = 0.3 kWh
Energy consumed by the heater in 1 hour, E3 = 2 kWh
Total energy consumed, E1E2 + E3
                                         = 0.2 kWh + 0.3 kWh + 2 kWh
                                         = 2.5 kWh

Total energy, consumed from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., E = 4 x 2.5 kW = 10 kWh

Total cost at base price, Rs. 5.5 per kWh = E x 5.5 = 10 x 5.5 = Rs. 55       Energy consumed by the TV in 1 hour, E1 = = 200 W x 1 hour = 200 Wh = 0.2 kWh
Energy consumed by the three bulbs in 1 hour, E2 = 3 x P x t = 3 x 100 W x 1 hour = 300 Wh = 0.3 kWh
Energy consumed by the heater in 1 hour, E3 = 2 kWh
Total energy consumed, E1E2 + E3
                                         = 0.2 kWh + 0.3 kWh + 2 kWh
                                         = 2.5 kWh

Total energy, consumed from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., E = 4 x 2.5 kW = 10 kWh

Total cost at base price, Rs. 5.5 per kWh = E x 5.5 = 10 x 5.5 = Rs. 55
