In parallel, the total resistance is found by using 1/total resistance = 1/R1 + 1/R2... so in this case 1/total resistance = 1/10 + 1/8 + 1/4.

As this is a parallel circuit you always have the same p.d across each resistor.

Then, the current is calculated using Current = p.d/resistance of each resistor. (Remember the p.d is the same as the source).
