## Main Question or Discussion Point

Now this is not a homework question, just a practise question and my answer doesn't match.

An AC source of 200 V rms supplies active power of 600 W and reactive power of 800 VAR. The rms current drawn from the source is ? (the answer is 3.75 while mine is 5)

I did was squared and added the powers to get V^2*I^2, plugged in the value of V and got I as 5... Any help?
