# How do I find the current in this battery?

##
A 2.0-ohm resistor is connected in a series with a 20.0 -V battery and a three-branch parallel network with branches whose resistance are 8.0 ohms each. Ignoring the batteryâ€™s internal resistance, what is the current in the battery? Show your work.
