How do i solve this? I wasn't given any examples at all. But i've tried to do this.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Iab + Iad = Ibc + Idc <--------- they have to or else Kirchoff's law violated.

so Vab = Vad but i'm not sure if Vbc = Vdc?

i'll continue assuming Vbc = Vdc

Vab/40 + Vad/20 = Vbc/70 + Vdc/50

Va=0.45714286 Vc

Vbd/60+ Vc/50 = Va/20

Vbd = 0.1714286Vc

i thought that Va + Vc + Vbd = 20

solved for Vc and i got Vbd as 2.105263 V

The answer is 0.94V. Obviously i got something wrong here. Can some one explain to me where I went wrong, and how i can fix this. Thanks
