To find the resistance of the circuit, you can use the formula:

Resistance (R) = Voltage (V) / Current (I)

Given: Current (I) = 5 A Power (P) = 90 W

First, calculate the voltage using the formula:

Power (P) = Voltage (V) * Current (I)

Then, rearrange the formula to solve for voltage:

Voltage (V) = Power (P) / Current (I)

Substitute the given values:

Voltage (V) = 90 W / 5 A Voltage (V) = 18 V

Now, use Ohm's law to calculate the resistance:

Resistance (R) = Voltage (V) / Current (I) Resistance (R) = 18 V / 5 A Resistance (R) = 3.6 ohms
