Consider the circuit shown in Figure P28.9. (R = 33.0 .)

The question ask me to find the current flowing through the 33 ohm resistance and also the potential difference between point a and b.

I consider the 10, 5 and (33+5) to be parallel; 33 is in series with 5.

So the equivalent resistance found by me is 13.06 ohm, thus the total current is 1.91A. Then I apply the current division method and found that the current flowing through the 33 ohm was 0.154A. This answer was wrong!

Somebody please help me. I am quite depressing now. What's wrong with my answer?
