Homework Question on resistors in series, in parallel

  1. Feb 12, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    See attached image.

    2. Relevant equations

    V=IR, Kirchoff's Law

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I thought that since the resistors are in parallel, the voltage drop across each one would be equivalent, so V=I1(14)=I2(38)=I3(7)=I4(Rx). From here I became stuck. Please help!
