  1. c = kwhp
    You do not give any way to evaluate k
    c = 70*2*8.99 = 1258.6k
    Now supply the constant of variation, k.

  2. Solution:
    suppose: cost of appliance (c), number of watts (w), hours (h) and cost per kilowatt hour (p)
    Math sentence:
    c = kwhp
    substitute:
    c = k (70)(2)(8.99)
    c = (1)(1258.6)
    c = 1256.6
    Therefore the cost of operation is 1,256 pesos and 6 centavos
