Here is the problem statement

## Homework Equations

Vth = V1*R2/(R1+R2)

Rth = R1*R2/(R1+R2)

Vth - Rth*Id - Vz = 0

## The Attempt at a Solution

Here is my attempt at a solution.

I am having trouble finding the Thevenin Voltage for a circuit with a Zener Diode with two voltage sources. This attempt at a solution proved to be no help, because as you may have seen in the picture you downloaded, it kept on telling me it was wrong. Once I find the Thevenin voltage, I will be able to find the current through the Zener Diode with the formula Vth - Rth*Id - Vz = 0. May somebody please help me?
