## Homework Statement

Using Kirchhoff's rules, find the currents I

_{1}, I

_{2}, and I

_{3}in the circuit shown where R

_{1}= 8.0 ohms, R

_{2}= 9.0 ohms, and R

_{3}= 5.0 ohms.

## Homework Equations

Loop law, Junction law

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know how to work the formulas, but the picture is really confusing. The directions of the currents don't make any sense. I have arrows going away from both the positive and negative terminal and I can't figure out how to set up the equations with the arrows like that.
