Welcome to Physics Forums.

What is the equation that relates power, energy, and time?

You'll have to show an attempt at solving the problem before getting help (sorry, but that's our policy).

Power = Energy x Time
Energy = Power / Time
Time = Power / Energy

Is this right ??

Not quite, it's

Power = Energy / Time
etc.

Using that, can you find (a) the energy supplied to the 800 W motor?
