(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The circuit below combines variable resistors R1 and R2 with fixed resistors to make a complex voltage divider.

If the switch is closed and R1=8000ohms and R2 is 5000ohms, what is the output voltage.

2. Relevant equations

V=IR

3. The attempt at a solution

the equivalent resistor of 1000 and 8000 is 3077 and the current through that is 0.03A. Im not sure what to do after that.
