## series-parallel circuit

Sir, can you help me solve for this series-parallel circuit problem and what are the steps in solving it. I'm trying solve for voltages, current and power in each part of the circuit. Although I know all the formula's (Ohms Law), when it comes to simplifying I got a hard time solving it.

Then combine that value with r3 in parallel. Repeat. The values are all setup so that you can do this in your head in about 30 seconds. The current through r6 is 4 amps.

I put that one time when someone did PM a follow up to a question and never changed it. Maybe its working that's why I'm not getting PM questions. I do respond to PMs. Just not to questions that should be asked in the forum.
