The voltage divider technique was derived from a circuit where the resistors and battery were in series.

I want to focus on the the variable V in the following formula.

And I only want to focus only on circuits whose elements are all in series with one another (No current division)

(V

in the problem they used that voltage divider technique to solve for V

My question is regaurding circuits with only battereis and resistors: It is obvious that the voltage divider works with elements that are not in series. How will I know when I can use volt divider tech.? Because the only way I understand how to use it is if all elements are in series.

(V

_{Rn}= R_{n}/R_{eq}*V, where V is the sum of the the constant voltage sources in series.in the problem they used that voltage divider technique to solve for V

_{0}, however they have a multiple of V_{1}which is the voltage source not in series with V_{0}.My question is regaurding circuits with only battereis and resistors: It is obvious that the voltage divider works with elements that are not in series.
