Step 1: Redraw the circuit to better reveal which resistors are in parallel and which are in series.

Step 2: Combine the series resistances.

Step 3: Reduce any parallel resistances using the formula for resistors in parallel.

Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have reduced the resistor network to a single equivalent resistance.

Step 5: Apply Ohm's Law.

Thanks , the steps helped me around first i think we will shorten the circuit by finding Req and then using Ohms law to find Io.

js2006,

I think you have the idea now.

If you get stuck on any of the steps let me know and I will try to get you moving again.

Let us know what your final answer is.
