    this was a question asked and i dont know what to do with the leading and lagging power factors?

    Two loads are connected in parallel. The voltage over the loads is 380 V (rms) The first load absorbs an average power of 10 kW at a lagging power factor of 0.7, while the second load absorbs 30 kVA at a leading power factor of 0.5.
    (a) What is the complex power of the two loads combined?
