Voltage and Current within Circuit Loops

EANDM-XTV65B

Consider the circuit in the accompanying diagram. There are four resistors: Two resistors ($10\Omega$ and $20\Omega$)connected in series on the left leg between points (a) and (c), and two resistors ($5\Omega$ and $15\Omega$) between points (b) and (d). The current
flowing in the left leg (between (a) and (c)) is measured to be 1 Amp.

What is the voltage on the battery ($V$)?

What is the total current ($I$) leaving the battery?
