**1. Homework Statement**

[tex]\epsilon[/tex]batt = 12V

Find the following currents.

The current I1 through the resistor of resistance R1 = 15.0 ohms.

The current I2 through the resistor of resistance R2 = 45.0 ohms.

The current I3 through the resistor of resistance R3 = 25.0 ohms.

The current I4 through the resistor of resistance R4 = 25.0 ohms.

**2. Homework Equations**

I = V/R

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

First I reduced the circuit to find the equivalent resistance of all resistors R = 56.5 ohms. From this I was able to determine that the current from the equivalent resistor is 12/56.5 = .212 A.

I am really confused as to how to solve for the currents through each element since I don't know the ∆V of each and some are in series while others are in parallel.

Any help is appreciated!
