    My electric bill tells me the 'units' I've used but not the kilowatt
    hours. Is there a formula for converting units to kilowatt hours?

    Thanks

    1 unit = 1 kWh, about 7p

    Very tricky to use a mathematical formula, but the regex
    s/units/kW\/hrs/g should do the trick. B-)

    But that still works out to 1 unit = 1 kWh. Nah ! You've lost me again.
    Can you put it in layman's terms ? :))

    Sure.

    Think of a number
    Add it to the number of units.
    Multply by three.
    Add nine
    Divede by three.
    Subtract 2
    Subtract the number you first thought of.
    The answer is now one more than the KW/h.
    :)

    I pay from 1st October 3.03p per kWh from Telcom Plus. I have just received
    their new rates with my latest bill. I have the land line telephone deal
    and all calls are now at local rate, that is local and national. 100 free
    minutes every weekend to any other Telecom Pus user.

    The new deals are not yet on the web site. I assume they will be there after
    October 1st or just before.
