Because power=(i^2)R if each individual resistance is known. Current is same in series.

In series circuit powers are not additive but in parallel additive.

Power is power, I mean that it hasn't direction, briefly the power additive at any case.

Additive means?

Jitendra Kumar said: (Nov 6, 2017)  
Power is additive in case of parallel circuit not in series circuit.

Power is additive for parallel only.

Power additive in parallel circuit only to verify simply connect two different rating incandescent lamps in series, parllel and see the reading or wattmeter in each case.
