the current which flows into each of the three resistor, is such that: \[\Large {R_1}I + {R_2}I + {R_3}I = {V_1} + {V_2} + {V_3}\] or: \[\Large \left( {{R_1} + {R_2} + {R_3}} \right)I = {V_1} + {V_2} + {V_3}\]
Now, the voltage drop: \[\Large \left( {{R_1} + {R_2} + {R_3}} \right)I\] is equal to the voltage V applied to the battery to the three resitance, so we can write \[\Large \left( {{R_1} + {R_2} + {R_3}} \right)I = V\]
next, please substitute that last equation into the second one, and you will get your answer
