Ohm's Law is V=IR. Rearranging, you have I = V/R. Now, assuming your voltage remains constant when the new resistance is installed, you will have\[\frac{I_2}{I_1}=\frac{V/R_2}{V/R_1}=\frac{R_1}{R_2}\]So your new current is,\[I_2=(\frac{R_1}{R_2})I_1=\frac{R_1}{1.75R_1}1A=\frac{4}{7}A\]

A 4.7 kΩ resistor dissipates 0.75 W. The voltage is can you help me with this

You know have resistance and power, and you need to find voltage.  When I see 'resistance' in a question, I tend to think, V=IR When I see power, I tend to think,  P=IV These equations relate the thing you want - V - to variables you have - P and R.  The one thing they have in common that we don't want, is current, I.  So why don't we solve the first equation for I and substitute it into the second? So, I=V/R from first eq'n, and into the second,  P=(V/R)*V=V^2/R Solving for V, V = sqrt(PR) = sqrt(.75W*4700(ohms))= sqrt(3525) volts ~ 59V Check the actual arithmetic - I'm doing this on an iPhone and it's difficult.
