#### Solution:

### We know that each lamp draws 3 A of current, which means both lamps in total draw a total of 6 A of current.

### The equation to determine power is P=VI where P is power, V is voltage and I is current. Substituting the values we know, we can write the following:

### P=VI

### P=(12V)(6A)

### P=72W
