so in this problem to cause a ventricular of deprivation. Ah, the current ranch, Toby. Like what? 100,000,000 peers to 300 made amperes. Okay. And we already know that the resistance in this problem are is a 4000 homes, so we can simply utilised ome flaw. All times are is equal to the voltage. So we want to find out of always the voltage, so we simply use this one. Okay, so the values of 400 volts, okay?
