Consider the electric circuit shown in the figure. Assume that V = 10.4 V, R1 = R2 = R3 = R4 = R5 = 3.00 Ohm. What is the electric current flowing through resistor R2? I couldn't upload the figure, but you can find it on my cramster.com post:

2. The attempt at a solution

I can get as far as determining the equivalent resistance, but I am stuck as to how to use this to find the current flowing through a single resistor (in this case, R2). I would appreciate it if someone could explain to me the "how" and "why" behind finding the answer. Any help is appreciated!!!!!!!!! :-)
