I attached the question. We have to use superposition to find the value of Vo.
Rt = R1 + R2 + R3 + ... + Rn in series.
(1/Rt) = (1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3 + ... + 1/Rn)^-1 in parallel.
Current divider = (Rx/Rt)*Is
Voltage divider = (Vx/Vt)*Vs
The Attempt at a Solution
To find the value of Vo, I know I have to first replace the voltage source only with a short circuit and find Vo'.
Then remove the current source only with an open circuit and find Vo".
Then Vo = Vo' + Vo".
The problem I have is the setup of the resistors. How do we know what is in parallel/series with what? My teacher solved this question by shifting the resistors around but I did not understand that. Any tips for finding the total resistance where a setup of resistors similar to this would be appreciated.
If I can understand how to find the total resistance I should be able to solve this problem.
