## Homework Statement

So I was studying an example and the picture given simply asked to setup a voltage divider for the values without solving for resistance. However... I want to know if I'm missing something or if this can even be solved:

I attached the problem below.

## Homework Equations

V1=Vs*R1/(R1+R2) VDR

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I setup the circuit with 5 resistors in series with the ground after the first 3 resistors. However, when I try to solve for a voltage drop I get -15 on one side, so can't the other side with the negative values only be 9? Is it even possible to get a voltage drop of 15 originally and end up with -15 on the other side, considering the Vs is 24 v? Or are these values just not solvable?
