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

I am given the circuit, which is shown in the attachment, and I need to calculate the power supplied from each of the 12V batteries.

2. Relevant equations

I have already solved for the current in each resistor and the potential difference between a and b.

The only equation I know to use is P= IV, where I am calculating I by dividing V/R(equivalence)

3. The attempt at a solution

I have tried solving this multiple times, all without success. My most current attempt at the Power supplied from the right side was finding R(equivalence) = 9 the using I=V/R, then using the new R (4/3) in P=IV P=(4/3 A)*12V, where P=8, which I thought was a rather low number.
