Homework Help: Combination Circuits! help!

  1. Mar 1, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The circuit at the right is a combination circuit. The resistance values are

    R1 = 3.28
    R2 = 3.28
    R3 = 6.58

    Determine the equivalent resistance (for the combination of three resistors), the voltmeter readings and the ammeter readings at the indicated locations.

    R-eq =
    V1 =
    V3 =
    I1 =
    I2 =
    I3 =



    2. Relevant equations

    v=ir


    3. The attempt at a solution

    i need to find these.. i cant get the Equivilent resistance and thats messing me up on everything else. if someone could show me how to get this stuff itd be really appreciated!

    heres the picture that goes with it!
