Finding the Ampere!! :)

Hey!



Im doing some homework and i get confused about this mission. As you see, i have drawed my idea in the right corner, but i have come up with another idea.. and that is if the ampere goes the lowest resistance way? Or the way i drawed...

I appriciate feedback and any sort of help!

Looks like a simple application of Kirchoff's laws

Yes , your sketch is correct , and is the first step towards solving the problem ...

"Does the current go the lower resistance way ?" ...it goes both ways , divided in a manner determined by the resistance ...
