Homework Help: Simple Circuit Problem

  1. Feb 4, 2007 #1
    I don't under stand the question

    "Determine the equivalent Thevenin voltage source external to the load resistor"

    here's a diagram of the circuit. All I need to know is where on the circuit I'm suppose to calculate this, then I can take it from there. Do I take out the load resistor from the circuit and find the voltage?

    Diagram:

    70 ohms and 30 volts sound right?
