Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, the total current is: \[\large I = \frac{V}{{{R_{TOTAL}}}} = \frac{{12}}{{5 + 5 + 2.5}} = ...Amperes\] since the total resistance is: \[\large {R_{TOTAL}} = 5 + 5 + \frac{5}{2} = ...Ohms\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we get 0.96? choice C is our solution?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh ok! so we get 2.4? meaning choice D should be our solution?
