You have multiplied the resistance by the voltage, the formula you stated was for current by voltage.## Homework Statement

You need to incorporate Ohms law.

P = IV is a good equation to use, but here you aren't given the current; you're given the resistance of the toaster. Try using Ohm's law to rearrange the equation for power and find an equation whose knowns are already given.
