Need help on series circuts

_________300ma__

_ +......................| R1
9v.......................|.............................. ignore the dots in the middle
- -...................... ∏ L2
|..........................| 2R

Find the:

The value of R

The total resistance

and any other answers this question might yield

Thanks a lot.

only question i got wrong in a test. :(

 300ma = 9/R Total Resistance = 30Ohms 30/2 = 15ohms each resistor?

I am redrawing the circuit, hopefully this is easier to look at:
Code:

Are you sure you reproduced the question accurately? It's weird to have those inductors in there, without for example a switch that closes at time t=0 or something along those lines. Also, is the 300 mA the current at some specific time, or after a long time has passed?

Also, did you mean to say 2R or R2 in the figure?

If R were 300 ohms, then the current would be 9/300≠0.3A.

I mean 30 Ohms, the O makes it look like a 300
