- Homework Statement:
- In a circuit R1=R2, these are in series linked in parallel to R3=150 ohms and R4=200 ohm which are in series The current flowing through R1 is 4 amperes. The source has 15V in the total circuit. Solve for I3 and R1 and R2

- Relevant Equations:
- Vparalell=V1=V2.. Iseries=I1=I2.. Rseries=R1+R2... 1/Rpara=1/R1 + 1/R2..

From what I understand is that you can sum up R3 and R4 to get 350 ohms

Then you can can a parallel circuit with the missing resistors, 4amp and the new 350 ohm resistor and that's about it.

My textbook says the answer is 55 ohms for the resistors and the current is 0.073 but I got 3.75 ohms (15v/4 amp) and that's about it. I'm very lost
