Find current flowing through each resister, voltage across each resister and power consumed by each element in the following circuit.

See the attachment

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

The question I want to ask here is that is the current = 10 A? Because I got 2 answers for current, 0 A and 10 A.

I did this:

I combined 10 and 10 ohm resistors to get a 5 ohm resistor.

Now total power consumed=total power supplied

So I^2(3) + I^2(5) + I^2(2) = 100I

which gives I = 0 or 10. Which one should I take?
