I agree. There's usually more than one way to solve for unknowns in a circuit, but the simplest is usually the best. Easier to do and less likely to generate an error in the calculations. And I try to avoid any solutions that involve solving simultaneous equations......................
...................... evaluating the individual currents and subtracting from the total as shown by the OP in post #4 still appears to me to be a simpler solution.
