note that voltage is constant across each resistor. also in parallel circuit, the sum of the currents across each resistor is equal to the total current,, since there are only two resistors in the circuit in the problem,
I1 + I2 = I,total
substituting,
1 + I2 = 3
I2 = 31 = 2 A
hope this helps~ :) 👍
