1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The problem and its solution are attached. 2. Relevant equations V = RI R_eq = 1/R_1 + 1/R_2 + ... + 1/R_n (Parallel circuits) R_eq = R_1 + R_2 + ... + R_n (Series circuits) 3. The attempt at a solution For the two lines of math below “Now referring to the reduced network of Fig. 3-14(b),”, could someone please explain to me why those specific numbers were chosen? I believe that the voltage across each resistor should be (2 Ω)(13.7 A) = 27.4 V and, I thought that I would have to do V/R = I for the 9.8 Ω and 2.0 Ω resistors such that I get (27.4 V) /(9.8 Ω) = 2.7959183673469387755102040816327 A and (27.4 V)/(2 Ω) = 13.7 A but, both are wrong, and, I don't understand what I am doing wrong. Any help in understanding what I am doing wrong as well as figuring out what is the correct way to approach the part that I am stuck on would be greatly appreciated!
