# Simple circuits question

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

Calculate the power delivered to (or dissipated by) R1

**2. Relevant equations**

V=IR

P=I^2R

**3. The attempt at a solution**

I attempted to calculate the equivalence resistance by doing… 2+(2^-1+4^-1+4^-1)^-1 = and I get 3.

I later calculate a current of 36.67Amps, and a power of 2688 watts. What did I do wrong.

then I tr
