## Homework Statement

Hello, I was hoping someone could walk me through the steps to solve this problem:

The power absorbed by the 5Ω resistor is 20W. Find V

## Homework Equations

V= I x R

P = V

^{2}/R

## The Attempt at a Solution

I first found the voltage across the 5Ω resistor to be 10V using V= I x R and substituting 20W / V for the current. How do I find the total voltage supplied?
