Proving the voltage divider rule?

  1. Sep 17, 2012 #1
    What SIMPLE method would you use to prove that series circuits are voltage dividers, while the current remains constant?
    What Simple method would I have to use to confirm that parallel circuits are current dividers, while the potential difference remains constant?
