Very Simple Question Regarding Series and Parallel Circuits

Hello,

I have a very simple regarding the use of parallel and series circuits. So take a look at the image attached. FYI This schematic is just for demonstration purposes. So say those LEDS draw 2 amps each and the motor draws 20 amps. Does this mean that 24 amps will be flowing through the motor since it closes the circuit?

Probably a really dumb question, but it would make a huge difference in my circuitry and I just don't want to make any stupid mistakes.

Thanks in advance

The motor will draw whatever amps it needs... If it needs in excess of what he supply will supply it, the supply will fail or puke... If it needs less than what the supply is capable of supplying it will draw that amount, fully dependent on the motors requirements...

FYI each LED also closes the circuit, and without limiting will pop like popcorn...

Oh ok thanks. Yeah I just quick made that for demonstration purposes so I didn't add limiting. Thanks for the quick response
