## Homework Statement

"Find ##R_2## and ##R_3##, assuming negligible resistance ##r=0\frac{V}{A}##."

##R_1=6.1\frac{V}{A}##

##I_1=1.3A##

##I_3=4.8A##

##\epsilon = 24 V##

## Homework Equations

Voltage in parallel circuits: ##V_1=V_2## or ##I_1R_1=I_2R_2##

Total voltage: ##\epsilon = I_1R_1+I_2R_2+I_3R_3##

## The Attempt at a Solution

##I_3=I_1+I_2##

##I_2=I_3-I_1=3.5 A##

##R_2=\frac{I_1}{I_2}R_1=2.265\frac{V}{A}##

##R_3=\frac{1}{I_3}(\epsilon -I_1R_1+I_2R_2)=1.7\frac{V}{A}##

I'm new to circuits, so if anyone would like to care to tell me where I went wrong, that would be much appreciated. Thank you.
