Would the equivalent resistance be :
1/Req= 1/30+1/30 = 2/30 and the answer would be 15 ohms for the equivalent resistance due to R and R1 being in parallel?
Sorry about the error, I thought that R2,R3,R4 were in series so the resistors in series would equal:
R2(5)+R3(10)+R4(15)= 30 Ohms.
R1 is in parallel so it would be :
1/Req= 1/30 = 30 Ohms.
The total equivalent resistance would be 30ohms +30 ohms=60 ohms.
I attempted to solve the problem by following the positive terminal of the battery and I realized that Resistor R1 has a different path than R2+R3+R4. I came to the conclusion that R1 is in parallel with R2+R3+R4. The series connection with R2,R3,R4 would be 30 ohm total by adding the three...
