**1. (a) Calculate the current through each ideal battery in the figure. Assume that R1 = 1.0 Ω, R2 = 2.0 Ω, ε1 = 4.0 V, and ε2 = ε3 = 8.0 V. Take positive current as that flowing through the battery from - to +.**(See diagram)

I just need some guidance about how to set this problem up.

I've tried applying the Junction rule, to give me I1 + I3 = I2

And then the Loop rule to give:

4.0 V - 1(I1) - 2(I2) - 8V - 1(I1) = 0

8V - 1(I3) - 2(I2) - 8V - 1(I3) = 0

Am I setting this problem up correctly and using the right equations?

Thanks
