    When using Zener diodes in series, the current and voltage distribution will follow Kirchoff’s laws, and you can derive a specific relationship for the voltage and current distribution in your diodes.

    If applied voltage is greater than Built in potential then it will be forward bias then replace it by a short circuit if diode is ideal . If applied voltage is greater than zener voltage then zener diode is in breakdown and replace P side by negative terminal of cell of voltage equal to zener voltage. Then solve that question as you do for junction diode.
