    Use the formula V=IR
    V is voltage, I is current and R is resistance

    The current through the ammeter is equal to the total current going through the circuit before it. therefore the current through the lamp and resistor is equal to that of the ammeter, 0.9 amps. take the current through the resistor away from that of the ammeter. 0.9 - 0.4 amps, and you are left with the current through the lamp. 0.5 amps
