Hi, I am struggling to simplify this into a thevenin circuit. Firtsly I am unsure how the zener diode works and why the R1 is not required.(so does it create a voltage drop across the whole loop and , how does it work exactly?) Also unsure if the resistors are in series or not. I think you are menat to determine if the same current is flowing through each resistor to know whether they are in series or not, so if you assume the battery is at the 6.2Vwould you say that R3 and R4 are in series which you add, then the three remaining are in parallel?

The actual measured values are:

R2=5.6KO

R3=2.7KO

R4=68KO

R5=3.3KO

Rth=4.67Ko

Thanks
