The paper presents the calculated and measured of direct current resistive circuit using Thevenin method supplied at different positive voltages (5V, 10V, and 15 V). A breadboard, three different values of resistors (100Ω, 200Ω 10kΩ), and jumper wire were used for constructed the direct current resistive circuit. The voltmeter, and ammeter were used for measuring the voltage and resistance, respectively. The result showed, the calculated and the measured of Thevenin voltage at different positive voltages increased with increased of positive voltage increased from 4.54 V to 9.09 V, and 4.48 to 13.64 V, respectively. Meanwhile, the measured of Thevenin resistance is consistent with the calculated value. The result showed the measured of Thevenin voltage and resistance are consistent with the theoretical calculated measurement.
