## Homework Statement

"A circuit has a variable resistance (total 100 ohms) across which is a voltage drop of 12 V supplied by a battery. What must be its resistance if the voltage is to be A) 12V and B) 6.2V?"

## Homework Equations

V=IR

## The Attempt at a Solution

We haven't learned anything besides Ohm's Law for these equations, so I tried plugging in different values to try and dial in the answers, but it didn't work. Is there something I'm missing or am I being asked to solve for two unknowns? Hints appreciated.
