hello, just came across this type of question for first time.

A voltmeter with a range of 0-30volts is to be used to measure a 120 volt circuit. calculate the value of the resistor to be placed in series with the meter. the sensitivity of the meter is 1000 ohms per volt ?

2. Relevant equations

im taking a guess its 120-30 = 90 vd x 1000 = 90k ohms ? any input would help thanks

3. The attempt at a solution
