Find all of the following for the following circuit.

Resistors R1 and R2 and R6 and R7 are in series. While resistors R3, R4, and R5 are parallel.

Given information:

ε = 15.0V

ri = 0.25Ω

All other R's = 2.0Ω

1)RT or R[total] (this includes the ri)

2)Vdrops across R6

3)I (current) flow through R4

4)P dissipated by R5

5)VTerm or V[Terminal]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

For #1 where I am supposed to find the RT or R[total], do I just add together all the R and the ri? And if so would an answer of Rt = 14.25 be correct? Because there are seven resistors each with a value of 2.0Ω so I went (7)(2.0Ω ) + (0.25) = 14.25Ω (the 0.25 being the ri).

I am kind of at a loss as to how to solve this problem because there are so many things we are asked to find. Could someone suggest to me an order I should do these questions in to make things easier?
