How many 176 omega resistors (in parallel) are required to carry 5 A on a 220 V line?

For x number of resistors of resistance 176 Ω, the equivalent resistance of the resistors connected in parallel is given by Ohm’s law as:
V= IR, R= V/I
Where,
Supply voltage, V= 220 V
Current, I = 5 A
Equivalent resistance of the combination = R, given as Therefore, four resistors of 176 Ω are required to draw the given amount of current.
