I don't see why that should be A level - it seems perfectly fine for GCSE. What values do you have? What equation links these values?

so theres 230 v
and the power used to charge the battery is 6.9kw

current in amps= charge in coulombs divided by time in seconds or i= q divided by t

do you know or can help me?

We have P and V, and we're trying to find I.
What equation should we use?

There's no point in introducing Q or T if it's not in the question!
