SORRY I HOPE THIS CIRCUIT IS READABLE

Question

The 6V cell has a 2ohm internal resistance...The 1.5V cell has a 1ohm internal resistance. Work out the currents A, B and C!

I have split the circuit into two series circuits to make it easier for me

okay...as V=IR

6V = (C x 4ohms) + (A x 2ohms) + (internal resistance - A x 2ohms)

6V = (C x 4) + (A x 4)

...and for the other series circuit

1.5V = (C x 4ohms) + (internal resistance - B x 1ohm)

1.5V = (c x 4) + B

errr...now I'm stuck ...have i made a mess of trying to work this out...or do i need to use simultanous equations to work it out. I haven't a clue!

Please Help!

Thanx

James
