I found this question and would like to know whether my solution is correct.

I need to work out the current through each one of these resistors. enter image description here

I got the following values for the current:

  • I1 = 8.75 A
  • I2 = 3.5 A
  • I3 = 3.5 A
  • I4 = 5.25 A
  • I5 = 7 A

I couldn't find this question and it's solution anywhere, so I am not sure whether I have done this correctly. If someone could check this for me that would be brilliant.

Thanks in advance

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks, yh I put the values back in to the equations I got from kirchhoff's 1st law, and they seemed to check out. But I am still very new to this and would like to know for sure whether I arrived at the correct answer. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Aug 22, 2022 at 12:30
