P = IV

V = IR

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know how to solve the problem once i figure out which parts are parallel and which parts are series. So would it be R2 and R3 are in parallel and R4 is series, but what about R1? i have done a problem similar to this but without the R1 on the side (shown in the picture above)...if anyone can explain to me what is different about this, i would really appreciate it.
