Recording power and lumens for light bulbs.
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Which is more efficient, or has the highest lm/W, a lower- or higher-power light bulb? To find out, look at bulbs and record the power and lumens.
2. Relevant equations
Lumen, lm, = P or luminous flux.
3. The attempt at a solution
Power of the light bulbs would be the number of watts, correct?
I am confused as to how to calculate the lumens of a light bulb. My teacher said that we can just look at bulb boxes at a store, so I know no measuring of surfaces is involved.
Thanks in advance.

In europe, the number of Lumen will be present on the box.
I Have 2 boxes here that say:
230 V, 60 W, 710 Lumen
230 V, 100 W, 1340 Lumen
Kind of bulb: "Pearl"
so I don't think there is any calculation involved. I'd try to get some more datapoints
