1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Ok so I don't actually need help to solve the problem and find the currents and voltages for each resistors, that is done and quite easy for me. What I don't understand for this specific problem is why everything in the solution is inverse. For example: R1 and R2, my reflex would be to say they are in parallel, but in this problem they are in series R3, R4 and R5, my reflex would be to say they are in parallel, but in this problem, R4 and R5 and in parallel with the new combo R12, and finally R3 is in series with the combo R1234 I am assuming it is due to the fact of where A and B is positioned in the drawing, but I cannot explain it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
