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

Three batteries and four resistors are connected in a loop as shown (see attachment).

What is the voltage drop across the top left resistor?

2. Relevant equations

V = IR

3. The attempt at a solution

This is part 3 of the 3 questions for this problem. On the other two I found the current of the loop and the voltage across points a and b.

I think that all I need to do here is multiply IR (R being the value of that resistor) but that just seems too easy. Do I have to subtract it from the total voltage for the circuit or something?
