A battery of EMF 8.0 V and internal resistance r = 1.0 – is connected to an external circuit as shown:

I need to find out the total resistence and my problem is that I dont know which resistors consider parallel and which are in series as there is connection for 3ohm resistor after 1st resistor which confuses me. Answer I got is that the total resistance is 15ohms could anyone confirm it? Or point out where I went wrong?
