    Did I do this correctly?
    I have a given applied voltage of 208.
    R1= 50Ω, R2= 75Ω, R3= 400Ω (R2 & R3 in parallel), R4= 100Ω, R5= 400Ω (R4 & R5 in parallel), and lastly R6= 175Ω.
    I have figured R2&R3= 63.157 and R4&R5= 80Ω
    I added all together with a total of 368.157Ω
    Rt= 368.157Ω
    It= .565
    Er1= 28.25 volts
    Er2&3= 35.683 volts
    Er4&5= 45.2 volts
    Er6= 98.875 volts
    ( To check I rounded the answers to 28v + 36V + 45V + 99v)
    I then got 208 volts which is my applied voltage.:confused:

    You need to post a schematic.
