Homework Help: Where exactly is the battery in this diagram

  1. Oct 30, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I'm having trouble figuring out where exactly the battery is and if it's connected in series or parallel when the diagrams are given like in the image below.

    The book gives this description for the diagram. I don't really understand it.


    In other words how can I redraw this to the more usual type of diagram, like the one below where the battery (or emf source) is shown explicitly (not the same circuit!).



    2. Relevant equations
    3. The attempt at a solution
