You should first combine the two resistors in series, and then combine the result with the other resistor in parallel. What are the laws of combination for resistors in series? What about parallel?

for parallel: [tex]1/R_{eq}= 1/R_{1}+1/R_{2}+1/R_{3}...[/tex] so you're saying: 93[tex]\Omega[/tex]+35[tex]\Omega[/tex]+(1/40[tex]\Omega[/tex]) OR (1/93 +35) + (1/40) ???
