**Hey guys, I am supposed to solve for voltage and current on R4 using Thevenin's theorem here. Values are following:**

U = 100V

R1 = 310

R2 = 610

R3 = 220

R4 = 570

R5 = 200

U = 100V

R1 = 310

R2 = 610

R3 = 220

R4 = 570

R5 = 200

Now, I know I need to solve for Rth and Vth, so I put the circuit into simulation and figured out voltage on R3 is equal to voltage on R4, therefore that's my Vth. Although the theorem for current on R4 is

I

_{R4}= V

^{th}/ (R

^{th}+ R

_{4})

The simulation also showed current on R4 as 0.03 and pretty much my R

_{th}would need to be as low as 12 to be suitable for this equation, which isn't possible given the current values for all resistors. Can anyone point me to the right direction? Thanks.
