I was working on this circuit.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The problem asks to find the current through the R2 branch.....

Heres my approach and questions....

Start from the opposite end of the circuit...combine the 2 parallel resistors R2 and R3...the V2 goes to zero because of the superposition.....

The only question I had was are R1 and XL in parallel?....if so I could combine the R2 and R3 total found with R1..using product sum rule.......

Finally add XC to (XL)(R1)/(XL + R1).....to get the total impedence

than from there find the current....(current divider)
