1 mark for correct transformation and substitution into efficiency equation ie 0.8 × 1200 – useful power

1 mark for useful power = 960 W / 0.96 kW

1 mark for waste energy transferred = 0.24 × 0.5 or waste energy transferred = 0.12 (kWh)

1 mark for 1.8p

After you've calculated the useful energy, which is 0.96

we know that the energy used is 1.2
therefore the energy wasted would be 1.2-0.96 which is 0.24
