Homework Help: Using current divider circuit

  1. Sep 17, 2007 #1
    Hi I want someone to guide me through this by using current divider, where I want to find I3. Can I use the current divider formula directly or?

    You must use the current divider twice.
    First associate R2, R3 and R4 in a single resistor and calculate the current through the association, then use this current to calculate i3.
