at the first step, our equivalent circuit is: |dw:1434308893746:dw|

so, the total current is: \[\large I = \frac{V}{{{R_{TOTAL}}}} = \frac{{12}}{{5 + 5 + 2.5}} = ...Amperes\] since the total resistance is: \[\large {R_{TOTAL}} = 5 + 5 + \frac{5}{2} = ...Ohms\]

we get 0.96? choice C is our solution?
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
no, since 0.96 is a current, and we want the voltage drop across the parallel of both 5 ohms resistances. So our answer is: \[\large {V_1} = I{R_{AB}} = 0.96 \times \frac{5}{2} = ...Volts\] |dw:1434309158256:dw|
