Power = P1+P2+P3+........

Parallel indicates addition for power.

Anjali said: (Jun 15, 2015)  
Total power dissipation (p) = 4*P = 4*1.2 = 4.8.

What happens to power if in series?

Power dissipated in any sort of connection, either parallel, series or parallel/series it remains same. ie pt = p1 + p + p3 + ...... pn.

Power in all the circuits like series and parallel is additive.

Power dissipation = No of branches * power transmission in the branch = 4 * 1.2w = 4.8w.
