(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Calculate v (refer to attachment).

2. Relevant equations

Voltage division: Vout = Vin x R2 / R1 + R2

3. The attempt at a solution

V1 = V1 x R2 / R1 + R2

= 15 x 5 / 10 + 5

= 5V

V2 = V2 x R4 / R3 + R4

= 5 x 2 / 10 + 2

= 0.83V

V = 5 + 0.83

= 5.83V

But my answer is wrong. Could someone please tell me whats wrong?
