- trying to understand circuits

- Relevant Equations
- V=IR

I tried to name the point where the potential is the same and follow them, if two components are connected from one end only they are in series else in parallel, but when the shape of the circuit is a bit complicated like this , I struggle to reshape it into something that can clearly state if they are in parallel or in series

for example I built the following circuit on a website

if my simplification for now is correct 2 of the resistor are in series the other 2 are also in series and the R_eq of them is in parallel yet I can't figure out how to continue to understand the batteries configuration

I simplified like this then got stuck

I named the points originally c a b on the middle wire c d b upper c w b on the lower one
