Homework Statement


Find the current through all resistors.

Find the potential difference across all resistors

Homework Equations


Ohm's Law
Kirchhoff's Rules


The Attempt at a Solution


So I rearranged the circuit a little and got the total resistance to be three ohms and from there solved for current and go 8 amps....I'm lost from here
