## Main Question or Discussion Point

How do you find the current through a resistor that is in parallel with 2 other nonequal resistors? I totally forgot how to do this.

as an example, if

E = 10V

R1= 5ohm

R2 = 10ohm

R3 = 15ohm

So, I know that 1/Req = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3 = .533ohm

and also know Inet = 10V/.533ohm = 18.76A

but how do i get current going through R1???

please help, and thanks

PS --this is NOT a homework question even though i post alot of HW questions
