## Homework Statement

Three resistors with resistance 4 ohms, 2 ohms, and R are connected in parallel. There is a total current i through the network. Find the current through each resistor in terms of R and i.

Ignore the 4 ohms and 2 ohms for now I just need help with the CDR formula...Thanks

## Homework Equations

i_0 = i_1 + i_2 + i_3

V = V_1 + V_2 + V_3

V_n = i_n * R_n

## The Attempt at a Solution

Following the current divider rule I came to the "answer":

i_n = i_0(R_total/R_n)

so for example

i_1 = i_0((R_1 + R_2 + R_3)/R_1)

However my example problem states that the answer should be:

i_1 = i_0(R_2/(R_1 + R_2 + R_3)).....?
