    And the errors are due to the stupid "electron current convention" used in the example. They cant keep the signs straight!

    yes: perhaps I should have said "The solution shows them +ve" . A cursory glance tells you the "big battery" current will dominate (i.e. conventional flow from +ve to -ve) .

    Tain't gonna change guys. If it doesn't matter as you keep claiming then get over it. Otherwise good luck explaining vacuum tubes and other such devices.

    I don't give a fig which "convention" is used: this "educational" article had an error in the solution shown in the section "branch current": it's now been corrected: many thanks.
