A battery-battery-resistor circuit
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Battery (1.5v) -- Battery (1.5v) -- Lamp(18 Ohm) and back to the first battery.
The circuit is producing 0.25 Watt to the lamp. what is the inside-resistance of the batteries?
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
we already have 18 Ohms from the lamp so the remining 36-18=18 is the answer.

You cannot assume that the voltage across the lamp is 3V--not when the batteries have internal resistance. Instead, find an expression for power consumption in the lamp in terms of I and R, and solve for the current.
