Assuming that the above is a circuit (sorry for the bad drawing, ignore the dots), what would be Ia, Ib, Ic (currents), Va, Vb, Vc (voltages)? Initially, I thought that the current and the voltage would be the same at all points.

I know that Req is equal to the sum of R1 and R2 (resistance). So would Ia be Vs/(R1*R2)? Would Ib be Vs/R2? and Ic, Vs/R1?

For the voltages, I think that it is equal to Vs at points A,B,C. But, I am not sure.

I'd appreciate some feedback. Thanks.
