How much is the applied voltage?

A 10Ω- and 15Ω- resistor are in parallel across a dc voltage source. If the 10Ω- resistor has a voltage drop of 12 V, how much is the applied voltage?

this question has been haunting me for days, can anyone help I can't quite wrap around my head on how to solve this one, it's making me anxious.

    10Ω and 15Ω  in//

    v drop is 12V.

    Applied voltage is 12v.

    Since both the resistors are in parallel across the voltage source both will have the same voltage across them.
