    Ignore the 7k at the upper right, as it is an open circuit.

    That leaves a voltage source(12V) followed by a resistor (3k), followed by a single resistor (6k) in parallel with 3 more in series (3k, 10k, 5k).

    Well, what is your problem? Are you unable to form the equations (Loop/Mesh or Branch Methods), or able to write them down, but unable to calculate it?

    Some people don't "See" how stuff works right away when they are just starting.

    Being polite goes a long way. :)

    @ Kauhu it was a problem of thevenin theorem, I had already solved it but was just confirming.
