# Kirchoffs Law Parallel Circuit-with only I and R given.Solvable?

I`m doing my first ever Physics course, and i`ve hit a brick wall with Kirchoffs Law.

I understand what the laws are i just can`t seem to get the right answers on a particular question.

I then decided to cheat(because i exhausted all my options in trying to solve it) which i really don`t like doing.My tutor then said I also need to show my workings out,and so this is where i`m stuck i`ve tried everything i could find to do with Kirchoffs Laws but still no luck.

I`ve filled in the template the best i could, but if anymore information is needed please state.

Thanks a ton to anyone who can and is willing to help.

**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

The particular Question is number 4 on Teaching Advanced Physics 117- 5: Questions on Kirchhoff’s laws.(http://ift.tt/1kAHx3K)

There are 6 total resistors, 1 on first reciprocal,3 on the second and 2 on the bottom.

The question is "Ammeter A5 reads 3 A. All the resistors have the same value of 10 Ω. What are the readings on ammeters A1 to A8 and what is the terminal voltage of the battery?"

**2. Relevant equations**

Tried Ohms Law and Kirchoffs laws.

**3. The attempt at a solution**

I tried using Ohms law i.e V=IR, I=V/R etc i`ve also used some equations i saw that was saying about to find the total resistance use 1/R_{1}+1/R_{2} etc also tried using Kirchoffs Law.
