Find the current on the 20 ohm resistor.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Well, I'm fairly positive that the two 10 ohm resistors will transport the same amount of current so:

25V - I*25 - I2*10 = 0

25V + I3*5 - 10*I2 = 0

I = 2*I2 + I3

When I solve using those equations, I get I2 = 1.36 A and I = .45 A (I is double of what it should be).

Could anyone look at my equations and tell me what's wrong?
