Using the formula for power ( P = I^2R ), where ( P ) is power in watts, ( I ) is current in amperes, and ( R ) is resistance in ohms, we can rearrange the formula to solve for resistance:

( R = \frac{P}{I^2} )

Plugging in the given values:

( R = \frac{42, \text{W}}{(6, \text{A})^2} = \frac{42, \text{W}}{36, \text{A}^2} )

( R = 1.17, \Omega )

So, the resistance of the circuit is approximately ( 1.17, \Omega ).
