Because solving the potential dividers shows that Vb is greater (more positive) than Va.

If you want to turn the battery symbol around you can do so by specifying the battery voltage to be -6V rather than +6V. Technically this is allowed, but it may bother some who insist that a battery's positive terminal really should be positive with respect to its negative terminal :smile:

okay that's mean that we can turn the symbol of the battery if we turned "a" and "b" in the other side ??
i mean if we put b in the upper right side and a in the lower right side ?? :)

Sure, if you also move the ground symbol to the top so it stays connected to b.
