## Homework Statement

What is the power dissipated by the 5.0Ω resistor in the following circuit?

## Homework Equations

I thought maybe to simplify the resistance like.

1/r=1/30 +1/30

r=15

+10+5

R=30ohms

then find the current

v=ir

25=Ix30

I=.8333

then find power with the 5 ohms?

P=vi

P=25x5

P=75w?

answer given is 6.2w?

thanks.
