    I could do with some help with this one Im a bit out of my depth...

    The picture below is me checking the current on multisim before I proceeded with anything else... I seem to have different results!

    I wouldnt want anyone to do my homework for me but any useful hints will be greatly appreciated..

    I would start by reducing the resistances in the center branch to a single equivalent value and the two resistors in each of the outside branches to a single value. You can then use either nodal or mesh analysis to find the two source currents and the center branch current. Then you 'unpack' the center branch to find the individual currents in each resistor in the center branch.
