    a normal AM transmitter produces a total output of 24kw when modulated to a depth of 100% determine the power output when the carrier is modulated to a depth of 60%, one sideband is suppressed and the carrier components is attenuated by 26dB?

    For AM


    Pc= Carrier Power
    Pt=Total power (Carrier power + two sidebands of equal power)
    m=modulation index (as a fraction).

    This might be a useful starting point.

    With m=1 you are given Pt=24kW.

    Calculate the carrier power and proceed with the new conditions applied to find the new total power at 60% modulation (m=0.6). You will then be able to deduce the sideband powers. And so on.
