Q1:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Two lamps illuminate a screen equally. The first lamp has an intensity of 12.5cd and is 3.0m from the screen. The second lamp is 9.0m from the screen. What is its intensity?

I know I need to use P=4*pi*(I), but there is no variable included for distance (d). Another formula given is: Eill=P/(4*pi*d^2). How should I go about solving this problem now?

Q2:

A 15cd point source lamp provide equal illuminations on a wall. if the 45cd lamp is 12m away from the wall, how far from the wall is the 15cd lamp.

Again, there is no variable for distance in the equation: P=4*pi*I.
