    would i be right in saying that its 10v going through E and 20v going from A into the resistor?

    Are you required to solve it using a specific method (i.e. Kirchoff's Voltage Law, Superposition, Millman's Theorem, etc.)?

    I think probably using Kirchoffs law, i keep reading over it and its still not sinking in

    The circuit you have been given can be redrawn into the form shown in the Example Circuit presented in the AAC Tutorials section of this website. I suggest you study the example and its solution and see if that will help you in solving the problem you have before you.

    Once you have reviewed the example, take a stab at applying the technique to your specific circuit and post your efforts. I am sure that one of our members will be more than happy to assist you in determining where you may have veered off the path with your equations.
