## Homework Statement

If R1 = 4 x R2 then what are the values of the potential difference in terms of the EMF, E?

I have R1 = 3/4, and R2 = 1/4 but that seems a bit simplistic, then I tried plugging it into equations and got completely different answers.

## Homework Equations

R=V/I (?)

EMF=v1 +v2

## The Attempt at a Solution

First I simply put it as 1/4 and 3/4, then I plugged it into the equations:

v=IR

v

_{1}=1(4) =4

v

_{2}=1(1) =1

EMF=v1 + v2 = 5

R2 = 1.25, R1 = 5
