What is the resistance of an ideal ammeter?

I dont think the resistance of the ammeter is factored, take it as negligible.

I was, why don't you?
Now what is the potential difference across it?
You need to find the current through each resistor to
deduce what must flow through the ammeter.

For the purpose of this question the resistance of the ammeter is considered negligible as has been instructed by teacher
