1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Hi everyone ,,

got the following question

a. Find the total resistance, current and unknown voltage drops

b. Verify KVL around closed loop

c. Find the power dissipated by each resistor and note whether the power delivered is equal to the dissipated

d. If the resistors available with wattage rating of ½ , 1 and 2 W, what is the minimum wattage rating can be used for each resistance.

3. The attempt at a solution

I've solved them all except d ,, I didn't understand what question d actually means ...

can someone explain and answer for me for one resistor so I can get the others please :)

thanks in advance ,,
