**1. Homework Statement**

The battery has negligible internal resistance

Find the current in each resistor.

Find the power delivered by the battery.

**2. Homework Equations**

V=I/R

P=IV

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Now I feel like this problem is ridiculously simple, but cannot seem to get it right.

At first, I felt like all I needed to do was plug in the resistance and voltage of the battery, and that would give me the answer. But the resistors are in series/parallel with each other, and I know that affects the current but I'm not really sure how...

Thanks for the help I really appreciate it. I know this is a really simple problem I just can't seem to get it right...
