    This is a question that requires a voltage divider, Kirchoff's node law, series and parallel resistor equivalents, and Ohm's law.

    The circuit is

    ground - ig - 10W || (8W -14W - 18W) - ground

    The current in the triple series resistors must be the same (ia). Therefore, we can write the equivalent circuit by ...
