Find Voltage Using Voltage Division Rule

Determine voltage across R_2 and R_4 using voltage division rule.
Assume that
V_1=20 V, R_1=10 \Omega, R_2=5 \Omega, R_3=30 \Omega and R_4=10 \Omega
solve using voltage division rule

Please note that the voltage division rule cannot be directly applied. This is to say that:
