Hi, just wonderin if anyone knows any easy ways to solving circuits when asked to find for example: the voltage total, resistor 1, Current total etc

Thx for any help

The current along R3 will give you the voltage in the two branches. From there you can figure out the rest of the circuit.

R3 = 60 ohms x 2 amps = 120v.

R2 = 120 volts / 80 ohms = 1.5 amps

R1 = 2a + 1.5a = 3.5a x 50 ohms = 175v

so Vt = 120v + 175v = 295v.

use ohms law to solve all.

V = I X R.
