Homework Statement


If I have a circuit with some resistors and then the circuit branches out in parallel where one route has a resistor (rA) and the other route does not, would I still incorporate the resistor (rA) in the calculation of the total resistance of the circuit?

Do you mean to say that rA is connected with a wire (without any resistance) in parallel. In other words is rA short circuited? If yes, then their equivalent resistance will be zero and rA wont contribute to total resistance of the circuit.
