Find the current flowing through the 200ohm resistor

E1=5v

E2=10v

E3=15v

r1=3ohms

r2=6ohms

r3=9ohms

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that I1+I2+I3=I

I cant seem to get a loop rule that will allow me to solve for I though.

I came up with the equivalant resistance in the three resistors equal to 1.6ohms.

I tried to draw a simplified circuit diagram, but i am not sure how to do that with different voltages on batteries in parallel.

thanks
