    See attached file.
    At junction B, by KCL (Kirchhoff's current law):
    sum(Ii) = 0 => I1+I2 - I3 = 0
    => I3 = I1 + I2 .... (1)

    For closed loop ABEFA, by KVL (Kirchhoff's voltage law):
    sum(Ii*Ri) = sum(Ei) (take clockwise as +ve direction):
    I3*R4 + I1*R1 = E1 ..........(2)
    For closed mesh or ...

    Solution Summary

    The current is found using Kirchhoff's current law. The flows through each of the four resistors in a figure are given.
