Homework Statement


Indicate which of the 6 LEDs are ON and which are OFF


Homework Equations


V=IR


The Attempt at a Solution


Okay, I know LEDs 4,5 and 6 will be ON and LED 2 and 3 will be OFF but what about LED 1? Because LED 2 has a very high resistance as it is reverse biased thus no current flows, but would that mean current would still flow through LED 1?

LED-s 1, 2, 3 are connected in series. Can the current flowing through LED 1 be different from the current which flows through the other ones?
