Homework Help: Finding potential difference(electric circuit)

  1. Apr 2, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    What is the potential difference across the 6.0 ohm resistor?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I got my attempt on the question below on an attachment.
    The final answer is 0.85V, if anyone can help me and confirm it, its greatly greatly appreciated.
