(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

For the circuit shown, find the power dissipated by the 10.0 ohm resistor.

(as attached)

2. Relevant equations

P=IV=I^{2}R=V^{2}R

V=IR

3. The attempt at a solution

I really don't know where to start with this. I'm basically tied up in the fact that there are three different sources of voltage.

Am I to add the series/parallel resistances up for the whole circuit? I think I have to find current I in order to solve this but i'm really confused.
