We're suppose to find the current on the R resistor(32 ohms) and then find the potential difference between point a and b.

The attempt at a solution

For the first problem I'm having a little problem getting this started. I tried getting solving for the total resistance and then assuming voltage is same throughout the circuit, I applied R=V/I to solve for current at that resistor but I'm not getting the right answer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

EDIT: I solved the other problem
