A) The current though each resistor is V/R. Each has the same value of V (100 V) across it.

B) The resistance of the two resistors add up to an effective circuit resistance of Rtotal = 100 ohms.

I = V/Rtotal

use that value of I for the individual voltage drops. The same current goes through both when they are in series.
