    Hi UnusualCrocodile,

    Thanks for your question!

    Before using the EE formula, you must find the time it takes to reach 1.0 MJ with a power of 1700W.

    Remember that 1 W equals to 1 J per second. Thus, 1700 W equals to 1700 J/s.

    1.0 MJ equals 1,000,000 J. If you divide this number by 1700 J/s, you will find the time it takes to produce 1.0 MJ.

    Therefore, you need to find the real consumption of energy of the fryer with an energy efficiency of 90% (by using the EE formula). Then, you will be able to find the answer using the method I described.

    Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any question!
