circuitsequivalent resistance
1. Homework Statement
What is the equivalent resistance between points a and b in the figure ?
2. Homework Equations
Resistors in series add up, resistors in parallel are 1/(1/R + 1/R...)
3. The Attempt at a Solution
I tried 1/(1/16 + 1/12 + 1/4) + 5, but I get 7.5 and the answer is 7 ohms....where did I go astray?
