## Homework Statement

The circuit (attached) shows a 10kOhm potentiometer with a 5 KOhm load. Determine the position of the slider on the 'pot' when the voltage across points 'XX' is 3V.

## Homework Equations

Vout = Vin* (R2/(R1+R2))

## The Attempt at a Solution

Please see attachment. Any help on where to go next would be greatly appreciated, Im completely stuck at the moment. Thanks.

R2 = (R1 x Vout) / (Vin + 1)

R2 = (10000 X 3) / (9 +1)

R2 = 3000 Ohms = 3kOhms
