## Homework Statement

In the circuit shown, find (a) the current in each resistors (b)The power dissipated in each resistor.

## Homework Equations

V=IR, P=VI, KVL and KCL

## The Attempt at a Solution

See attached.

I was going to post this in the main section as its really a question about whether you can have two voltage sources in your equation, but I read the sticky on the main page for general physics and it directed all coursework type questions here.

In the drawing I have a section underlined. When I set up my equations, I got two voltages in the equation. I wanted to know if that is valid? If I should come across another equation like this, is there a rule for knowing not to do this? The solution to this problem is not the same as what I derived. Please give me some direction with this, thanks!
