See if this explanation helps - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheatstone_bridge

In parts b-d, R4 = R + [itex]\Delta R[/itex], and R1 = R2 = R3.

Find an expression for V0 in terms of R1, R2, R3 and R4, then substitute in the appropriate values.

In part d, one is looking for how much V0 changes as [itex]\Delta R[/itex] changes.
